Deceitful Hope: A Memoir (Paperback)
#1 AMAZON NEW RELEASE & BESTSELLER - "The raw honesty and powerful emotion embedded into these pages is simply brilliant." -Halen Lock Having been born in South Korea, Sowon Kim moved to Peru in 2007, when she just was three months old. Never having had the time to develop her identity, she soon found herself stuck between two radically different worlds: her country of origin and her home country. There was yet another problem to deal with-racism, xenophobia, and discrimination that impacted her deeply every day. But through trial and error and overcoming hatred and loneliness, Sowon discovered the key to a sense of belonging, the key to not being stuck between two worlds but being part of both of them. Full of sincere and raw thoughts, Deceitful Hope is a concise account of the everyday struggles of a teenage immigrant-and anyone who has ever felt like they don't belong.
