Publisher's Summary

This heartwarming fictionalized autobiography tells the story of what it is like for a little girl to be growing up in an unfamiliar place. While other girls her age were enjoying childhood in America, Jean Fritz was in China in the midst of political unrest. During this time, foreigners were becoming more and more unpopular, and evacuation at a moment’s notice was imminent. Although Jean appreciated the beauty of China - the mountains, the countryside, the sea - she knew she belonged in America and longed to make her home there.

Great book!

We read this book as part of our homeschool curriculum. It is a very good book; both my daughter and I really enjoyed it. It was so much fun to hear it read by the author too.

Engaging

This was a great personal perspective of the communist take over in China. Jean Fritz reading the story of her own life brings emotion in her voice that conveys the story in a more complex and meaningful way.

review

enjoyed this story, not knowing what it was going to be about. Found I fot a little bit distracted 1/3 or 1/2 way through, until the journey to america started. wasn't expecting the story to finish when it did, would've liked to read more.
