Twelve-year-old Mia is on a five-day tour of North Korea with her older brother, Simon, and their father, Mark, an food aide worker, but she is scared because her father keeps sneaking off at night, and terrified that her brother's sullen, rebellious behavior (which has absolutely nothing to do with the Koreans) is going to get them in trouble--and things get much worse when she is pulled into a deadly political game that seeks to expose North Korean atrocities, and her father is arrested.

Great book, I really enjoyed it and I hope other people that read this book will like it too.

Danger ensues when Mia and her brother Simon get separated from their father in North Korea. If you're expecting a book that intertwines the history and current climate of Socialist North Korea, this is not the book (although there is a comprehensive history timeline at the beginning). It's more an adventure story of two siblings trying to beat the odds at surviving in a foreign country knowing minimal Korean; at times the plot is a bit slow paced, but the ending is at least a satisfying conclusion.
