Wow I really enjoyed that This is one of my favourite childrens books that I ve read I found it so easy to get stuck into and once I started reading it was difficult to put down The story was really fast paced and did lack a bit of detail but it is aimed at a slightly younger audience so I wasn t expecting it to be detailed anyway I really enjoyed the story and the character of Chu Ju really grows as the story goes on shes also such a humble character and she is really admirable I also learned alot of modern Chinese culture customs and traditions So not only was I enjoying the book but I felt like I was learning lots as well 4 stars

In our desire for a son we lost a daughterI was sorting my bookshelf a few days ago and I found this in a little section I put my favourite books from middle school in I found the book both enjoyable and relatable and I still do I never had to run away from my family and my family certainly never lived in a country with strict laws around the amount of children you could have But despite the differences in time and geography I found it relatable because for all the children my parents had most were girls Only one was a boy and as I grew older I realized exactly how much preference and favoritism he was given in every matter I was glad to see Chu Ju s parents understand what they had lost and love her regardless of her sex The story flows easily keeps readers interested and has a bittersweet ending Definitely would recommend for those in middle school today
