"Abandoned by her mother, abused by her gangster father and dominated by her older brother, young Junee struggles to make a life she can respect in the shady world of nightclubs in an American-culture enclave in Korea. A free and bold spirit in a culture built on Confucian patriarchy, Junee first said "no" to her family's legacy at the tender age of thirteen. Now she must learn the ropes on her own, and learn to distinguish between people who can lend a helping hand, and those who would exploit her unfortunate circumstances." "Princess June is an introspective and compassionate yet unflinching portrayal of a resilient soul in the making and of two disparate races trying to understand one another as human beings."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
