“Engrossing...Transcends politics and becomes the story of one little girl trying to survive.” —ALA Booklist
In 1966, twelve-year-old Ji-li Jiang was bright, popular, and had a promising future. But that year Mao Ze-dong launched the Cultural Revolution, and Ji-li’s world began to fall apart. This stunning memoir of one family’s courage and determination during one of the most terrifying eras of the twentieth century is now available in a teen rack edition just in time for the Summer 2008 Olympics in Bejing!
