Summary

In this powerful, page-turning debut, Jimin Han deftly shows that revolutions - whether big or small, in the world or of the heart - can have an impact that lasts through time and spans the oceans.

On a beautiful Pennsylvania fall morning, a gunman holds college freshman Yoona Lee and three of her classmates hostage in the claustrophobic confines of their dorm room. The desperate man with his finger on the trigger - Yoona's onetime friend, Lloyd Kang - is unraveling after a mysterious accident in Korea killed his closest friend, Jaesung, who was also the love of Yoona's life.

As the tense standoff unfolds, Yoona is forced to revisit her past, from growing up in an abusive household to the upheaval in her ancestral homeland to unwittingly falling in love. She must also confront the truth about what happened to Jaesung on that tragic day, even as her own fate hangs in the balance.

Through scenes of political upheaval and protests in South Korea, spirited conversations in cramped dumpling houses, and the quiet moments that happen when two people fall in love, A Small Revolution is a moving narrative brimming with longing, love, fear, and - ultimately - hope.

All is insane confusion

Not enough facts to give the reader an historical reference point. Main character development is weak. Ending tragic and predictable.

A surprising story

At times the story drags and then it picks up again. Overall the story is surprising especially the end.
