When My Name Was Keoko

Author: Linda Sue Park



A heartwarming tale of courage, resilience and hope from master storyteller and winner of the prestigious Newbery Medal, Linda Sue Park.
 
When her name was Keoko, Japan owned Korea, and Japanese soldiers ordered people around, telling them what they could do or say, even what sort of flowers they could grow.
 
When her name was Keoko, World War II came to Korea, and her friends and relatives had to work and fight for Japan.
 
When her name was Keoko, she never forgot her name was actually Kim Sun-hee. And no matter what she was called, she was Korean. Not Japanese.
 
Inspired by true-life events, this amazing story reveals what happens when your culture, country and identity are threatened.
