Timely and unique, Jia is the first novel about present-day North Korea to be published in the West. It is easily a YA crossover novel as Jia follows the adventures of an orphaned young woman, Jia in the 1970s and 1980s - bitterly tumultuous times for North Korea and China. Jia has the grace of a dancer but the misfortune of coming from a politically suspect family.

    " Very inspiring book - I recommended to all my friends. This book is honest, eye opening and a tear jerker. Jia's story pulls at your hear and is written with the voice of a true heroine that has had to endure many battles. I love Jia, it is honest and pure. "

    " It captivated me right from the start, may be that's because I've always been curious about North Korea and its people. As I read the last page, I couldn't help but feel that the story is incomplete... I want to know if Jia managed to find Sangwon and finally get in touch with her grand parents and sister again! I hope there'll be a sequel! "
