“The Girl with Seven Names” by Hyeonseo Lee – A Book Review

This is a North Korean Defector’s Story about the author Hyeonseo Lee. Hyeonseo Lee is the last name that the writer adopted. She had to change her names several times to achieve freedom from North Korea.

This book was captivating and it is better than any fictional stories I read on amazing escapes. It did not seem real that she had to go through so much to flee and later to get her family members to leave North Korea. It could have been fictional but it is not.

I recommend a read for this book. You would not be disappointed.
