You For Me For You

By Mia Chung

You For Me For You Top / Details
-Trees don't have ears. -How are you so sure? As they attempt to flee the Best Nation in the World, North Korean sisters Minhee and Junhee are torn apart at the border. Each must race across time and space to be together again - navigating the perilous Land of the Free and the treacherous terrain of personal belief. Food has learned to sprint.
