This paper provides a descriptive review of "Fox Girl" by Nora Okja Keller. The paper explains that after enduring more than her share of hardship and tragedy, the protagonist, Hyun Jin, has the opportunity to return to the life she once saw for herself - a life in which education is held in high regard and love is ever present. The author concludes that the story offers insight not only into a Korean culture, but also into the mind of someone who is striving to make decisions based on her commitment to better herself.
From the Paper:"Hyun Jin's best friend Sookie is the child of a prostitute, Duk Hee. Sookie struggles with a mother who acts more like a teenager than a parent. Hyun Jun finds this exciting. Sookie learns from her mother about what the future holds. Duk Hee introduces Sookie at age eight to prostitution.
"Through the tale of these best friends we learn that Duk Hee is actually the mother of Hyun Jin also. This discovery tailspins Hyun Jin down into the depths of "America Town", prostitution, pregnancy and the loss of her unborn fetus, a sense of elation and truth in raising Sookie's child, an escape to the real America, an awakening from her life as a stripper and prostitute, and eventually to the life she'd imagined - raising her child, surrounded by love and acceptance."
