The Kinship of Secrets by Eugenia Kim

Just before the onset of the Korean War, a mother and father leave Korea for America, bringing one young daughter with them, but leaving the other behind with relatives in the hope to someday return for her.  In alternating chapters, the two very different lives of Miran and Inja unfold with love, war, and rock-and-roll. But when Inja finally arrives in America, will she be meeting her true family at last or leaving her family in Korea forever?  Inspired by the author’s family history, The Kinship of Secrets is a powerful story of the everlasting bond between two sisters.
