Reviews

"Simply and hauntingly told, the book is written for young readers, but adults can learn a great deal from it as well." --New York Times, on the English-language edition
"The simple, direct narrative will grab readers with the eloquent account of daily trauma and hope." --Booklist, starred review, on the English-language edition
"Li effectively builds the climate of fear that accompanies the rise of the Red Guard. . . . Sketches about her grandparents root the narrative within a broader context of Chinese traditions as well as her own family's values, establishing a basis for Li's later portrayal of the individuals around her who respond to oppression with hope and faith in knowledge and education." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on the English-language edition
"Beautifully written . . . offers a somewhat broader view of a nation in turmoil and illustrates the grit and determination necessary for survival in a dysfunctional society." --School Library Journal
