'Beijing Doll' reads like the diary of an indecisively boy-crazy teenage girl. In order to escape from her oppressively strict high school and to pursue a personal passion, Chun Sue published her musings in local music magazines. A rock music addict who embraced and wrote about the Beijing punk rock scene, Chun Sue depicts much teenage angst and moodiness in 'Beijing Doll,' but seemingly fails to grow out of it. Her voice is fickle in the book, but supported with spurts of vague determination and personal strength. A decent debut and coming-of-age book by a young writer. Any later efforts, though, should be more substantial.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
