Reviews

A sensitive and revealing story of a Chinese American girl's coming of age in America. It is unique.

--New York Herald Tribune

A fascinating narrative, not only because of the courage and humour which shine through every page of the book, but also because it shows how the members of a typical Chinese family can adapt themselves to American conditions and take their part in the national life of the United States without losing the essentials of the cultural heritage which they rightly prize.
