Little Daughter Summary


Little Daughter: A Memoir of Survival in Burma and the West by Zoya Phan

Zoya Phan was born in the remote jungles of Burma, to the Karen ethnic group. For decades the Karen have been under attack from Burma's military junta. Zoya's mother was a guerrilla soldier, her father a freedom activist. Her early years were blissfully removed from the war. At the age of fourteen, however, Zoya's childhood was shattered as the Burmese army attacked. With their house in flames, Zoya and her family fled. So began two terrible years of running from guns, as Zoya joined thousands of refugees hiding in the jungle. Her family scattered, Zoya sought sanctuary across the border in a Thai refugee camp. Conditions in the camp were difficult, and Zoya now had to care for her ailing mother. A gifted pupil, she was eventually able to escape, first to Bangkok. In 2004 she fled to the UK and claimed asylum. The following year, at a 'free Burma' march, she appeared on the BBC, the first of countless interviews with the world's media - and became the face of a nation enslaved. By turns uplifting, tragic and entirely gripping, this is the extraordinary true story of the girl from the jungle who became an icon of a suffering land.
