Product description

Jung-ling isn’t wanted. Her family despise her. Her mother died giving birth to her, and in China this means she brings bad luck. She’s got a big sister and three big brothers, a father and a horrid stepmother. None of them love her. Life is tough. There’s only one place where Jung-ling is happy: school, where her natural academic gifts help her to shine. Can she find a way to follow her dreams, or will her spirit be crushed?

  • The powerful true story of a girl’s fight for acceptance
  • Vividly evokes Chinese society in the 1940s and 1950s
  • Explores important topics of discrimination and gender
  • An internationally bestselling, hugely acclaimed book
