LOVING FREEDOM! is the true story (documentary) about a girl's life as a slave who was born in Cambodia and now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. The Communist party known as the Khmer Rouge led by Pol Pot--dictator toppled the government & military of Cambodia and took over the people of Cambodia town-by-town. This book gives the reader a window into the life of Amy, the Communist takeover of Amy's home & family, and what Amy's life was like in a slave labor camp working long hours planting rice seedlings in rice paddies from age 9—13. As a slave, Amy feared for her life everyday and saw her friends who did not work hard enough or talked back to the leaders of the labor camp receive the ultimate punishment. This book reviews the loss of Amy's family, her escape through the jungle in bare feet to Thailand while fearing snakes & bullets, her life in refugee camps in Thailand & Philippines, and eventually her becoming a citizen in the United States. Amy expresses her appreciation of freedom within the United States and also discusses values such as the importance of appreciating family. This book is especially recommended for use in schools and churches to instill the importance of family, values, and appreciation of freedom.

This book will give you new inspiration to survive your own struggles of life. You will have a new appreciation of life and the freedom & desire to live your life to the fullest.

Chapter 1 starts out by giving the reader a view of Amy's childhood and family prior to the Khmer Rouge communist takeover. It describes what life was like living in a small city in Cambodia.
In Chapter 2 we see the impact that the Khmer Rouge communist regime had on the Cambodian society.
Chapter 3 reveals the gradual and subtle progression of the Khmer Rouge communist takeover starting with college students having an idea that eventually affected the lives of an entire country.
In Chapter 4 we look at how the Khmer Rouge communist takeover affected Amy, her four years spent as a slave in a communist labor camp (age 9—13) between 1975 and 1979, her escape from Cambodia, life in refugee camps, and finally her adapting to life in the United States. We discuss survival, freedom, and life.
This book is very interesting. This book is about a young girl who was a slave in a Cambodian communist labor camp. It explains her life in the labor camp as well as her life afterwards. I found this book to be very inspirational. Everybody of all ages should read this book.
