by Adeline Yen Mah [YA PB Mah or jB M276]
Chinese Cinderella is an autobiography. This book takes place all over China and helped me learn about Chinese culture.In this book Adeline is treated terribly and is criticized on a daily basis because her mother died giving birth to her. She is a physical and emotional punching bag for her sister, dad, stepmother, and brothers. The only people who care for Adeline are her grandparents and Aunt BaBa. She is often sent to boarding schools and separated from those she loves. Fortunately, Adeline overcomes the odds and grows up to become a doctor, and a great author. I would reccomend this book for older kids and adults because I am a teenager and I bawled my eyes out! It is a very good book though. -- Review submitted by Lilly G. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
