Summary
In this poignant and painful coming-of-age memoir set in 1940s China, a girl must overcome the trauma of a childhood dictated by a cruel stepmother and provide her own courageous voice—much like Cinderella herself. Adeline's affluent, powerful family considers her bad luck after her mother dies giving birth to her. Life does not get any easier when her father remarries. She and her siblings are subjected to the disdain of her stepmother, while her stepbrother and stepsister are spoiled. An outcast in her own family, Mah finds solace in books. Although Adeline wins prizes at school, they are not enough to compensate for what she really yearns for – the love and understanding of her family. This young readers adaptation of the critically acclaimed adult bestseller Falling Leaves includes 6-page photo insert and is a moving telling of the classic Cinderella story. Praise for Chinese Cinderella "The author recreates moments of cruelty and victory so convincingly that readers will feel almost as if they're in the room with her. . . . This memoir is hard to put down."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
