Author Michelle Rahal On Writing A Refugee’s Story - Part 2

"I think I'm supposed to write your book," Michelle Layer Rahal said when Minh Phuong Towner shared her 5 minute testimony. I'm so glad she did.  Reading Straining Forward, I experienced the Tet Offensive from the eyes of an 11 year old hiding beneath a bed. I clenched my fists as this little girl and her brother experienced betrayal and torture. I dreamed with her as she began a new life and prayed for her as PTSD wrecked it. By the end, I was cheering. How did Michelle take someone else's memories and write this riveting book? Find out here. In part 2, hear how Michelle was able to capture enough detail to truly plant the reader in the moment.
