|Plot Summary of Little Brother|
|"This is a story about the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia."
Stephanie Manhuyod, Resident Scholar
|"“Follow the lines out of the war…to the border…”
These are Mang's last words to his younger brother before they are separated in an urgent attempt to flee the soldiers. Vithy is on his own, with Mang's puzzling riddle as his only chance of survival. But what does it mean? Which lines and which border? The journey will be ruthless and unmerciful, and Vithy needs to persevere if he is going to find his brother. But will he make it? Or will the challenge be too much for him?
Rachel Lim, Resident Scholar
