Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Teresa Jindo
When Ying, an eleven-year-old Chinese girl, is told she has to visit her sick paternal grandmother, Ah Mau, she is hesitant. She does not want to leave her beloved maternal grandmother, Ah Pau, who has raised her. Ying does not understand why she has to visit someone she barely knows. In addition, she is very concerned about Ah Pau, who is ill. Finally, she reluctantly agrees in order to satisfy Ah Pau's wishes, and she plans to return as soon as possible. However, when she arrives at Ah Mau's, she finds out that she was brought there under false pretenses. Ying protests to no avail, and ends up being lead into a world of danger and betrayal.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-In 1948, 11-year-old Ying, the feisty, resourceful heroine of Russell's earlier novels, still lives with her beloved maternal grandmother, Ah Pau, in a small village in southeastern China. Word comes that her wealthy paternal grandmother, Ah Mah, is seriously ill and wants to see her. Ying makes the day-long trip only to discover that its real purpose is to marry her to the son of a well-to-do family. She wants no part of this arranged marriage and plots to return to Ah Pau, whose poor health has her very concerned. After a series of action-packed but unlikely adventures, including an escape and a subsequent capture by bandits, Ying finally makes it home. The story is told in workmanlike, straightforward prose. Its strengths are in the maturation of Ying expressed in her concern for Ah Pau and in her compassion for Ah Mah, and in the details of Chinese village life, particularly the wedding and funeral customs and the glimpse into life in a wealthy household. A pen-and-ink sketch introduces each chapter.-Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
Kirkus Reviews
Should a young girl follow the cultural imperatives of her society and go through with an arranged marriage, or embark upon a dangerous journey in an attempt to escape the situation? That's the dilemma that confronts Ying, the plucky 11-year-old heroine in this suspenseful novel.
