These were the final shouts nine-year-old Kim Phuc heard before her world dissolved into flames - before napalm bombs fell from the sky, burning away her clothing and searing deep into her skin. It's a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War. Kim was left for dead in a morgue; no one expected her to survive the attack. Napalm meant fire, and fire meant death.
Against all odds, Kim lived - but her journey toward healing was only beginning. When the napalm bombs dropped, everything Kim knew and relied on exploded along with them: her home, her country's freedom, her childhood innocence and happiness. The coming years would be marked by excruciating treatments for her burns and unrelenting physical pain throughout her body, which were constant reminders of that terrible day. Kim survived the pain of her body ablaze, but how could she possibly survive the pain of her devastated soul?
Fire Road is the true story of how she found the answer in a God who suffered himself; a Savior who truly understood and cared about the depths of her pain.

A Must Read
What a journey. recommend to anyone who wants to see how God answered prayer for Kim and she's really honest about how she feels.
I only rated the performance a little low because in the first half of the book the dialogue for some of the people on the story was way louder than the regular narration. But it seemed to get better as it went farther into the book.
This book had me in tears sometimes and laughing at God's goodness in others. The writing is a little choppy sometimes, but Kim says in the beginning she knows it may be and I think it's because of all the stuff she had to bring herself to remember.
It's such a wonderful story and all true that it's definitely worth reading!
