Chef Channy's book about how she and her family survived the Cambodian genocide.
Short Hair Detention is a true story recounting the intimate details of a thirteen-year-old Cambodian girl and her journey through the devastating years of the Cambodian genocide (1975 -1979).It progresses from the first six months of starvation to the agonizing moments when the Khmer Rouge separated her from her parents and how she learned to survive year-round unforgiving conditions. Throughout the journey, she experienced constant reminders to keep faith in God and to not lose hope that her family would somehow be able to survive.
Incredibly, the story describes undeniable moments of giggling with her starving teenage girlfriends, even under the direst circumstances.Those friendships, along with numerous kind-hearted people on the journey helped her to keep sane with small strands of hope to cling to.The story also reveals the animal instinct within that takes over the conscious mind, the self-inflicted emotional pain that weakened her, and the love that she had for her mother that gave her strength. It was this mother-daughter love that motivated her to look past her own misery and strive to survive for her mother.
