Ginger has recently completed a historical middle grade/YA crossover novel, but truly a book for young and old, entitled THE HUNDRED CHOICES DEPARTMENT STORE. Here is a short description: Set in Sinuiju, Korea (northern Korea) in the aftermath of World War II, the novel is inspired by my mother’s remembrances of her family’s painful struggles during the Russian invasion of their beloved hometown, and ultimate flight to South Korea just prior to the outbreak of the Korean War. While many young readers are aware of the current North Korean and Russian chaos monopolizing the airwaves, very few children know the history behind the troubles that have plagued the Korean peninsula for over sixty years.
