Overview

This book is a coming-of-age story that explores the issue of child sexual abuse.

Book Intro

Lee Geum-yi has previously published children's books and novels that contain realistic portrayals of social reality. In Yujin and Yujin, she deals with the serious social issue of child sexual abuse.
Through the delicate portrayal of the psychology of Big Yujin and Little Yujin, who were raped together when they were little, Lee follows their daily lives while at the same time exploring the grave subject matter of sexual violence in a mood that is not excessively dark or bleak.
Such narrative devices as the chance meeting between the two namesakes at middle school and the peculiar psychology of another protagonist who does not remember them at all add to the intrigue of the story. In addition, the interlocking narrative delicately conveys the contrasting inner worlds of the two protagonists and draws us deeper into the story. Lee states In reality, we can only choose one path to follow when we face a forked road, but in this fictional world, I wanted my readers to experience more than two versions of reality through different characters.
Furthermore, one of the book's virtues lies in the insight into the minds of adolescent girls, who can be even more mature than grown-ups sometimes, as they share their interests in the opposite sex and the new media pervading the world and partake in lively conversations.
