ISBN: 9781786075956 Category: Tags: ,


Singapore 1942. As Japanese troops sweep down Malaysia and into Singapore a village is ransacked. Only three survivors remain one of them a tiny child. In a neighbouring village seventeen-year-old Wang Di is bundled into the back of a troop carrier and shipped off to a Japanese military rape camp. In the year 2000 her mind is still haunted by her experiences there but she has long been silent about her memories of that time. It takes twelve-year-old Kevin and the mumbled confession he overhears from his ailing grandmother to set in motion a journey into the unknown to discover the truth. Weaving together two timelines and two life-changing secrets How We Disappeared is an evocative profoundly moving and utterly dazzling novel heralding the arrival of a new literary star.
