Escape from Communist Heaven

In communist Vietnam, fifteen-year-old Viet has survived the labor camp and been promoted to the self-motivation camp:

“Sunday was our only break in the monotony of digging, eating and sleeping. There was nothing else to do, so I spent every Sunday in the library reading the communist books. As I read, I felt bad for the people who thought they were sacrificing their lives so our country could have equality. I thought how worthless they would feel if they knew how communism had divided the people even further, allowing some people to act like gods and making others slaves.”
