In Order to Live
In Order to Live A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom By Park, Yeonmi, 1993- Book - 2015

This book is a must read. Especially for people that want to learn more about what it is like in North Korea, and for the victims of sexual trafficking. The story is split into three parts. North Korea, China, and South Korea. The first part details the author's experience as a young girl living in North Korea. There are many details and insights into the class system, and every day experiences involving famine, fear etc. The China section shows the devastating effects of human trafficking on vulnerable people. The third section might be considered the happy ending, with the reunion of the family. I cant really begin to express how important and courageous and inspirational this memoir is without you reading it yourself.
