Thirteen year olds Mollie Jones and Ida Baker have been best friends for as long as they can remember. Growing up in the same small Virginia town, the girls shared secrets and dreams, had sleepovers, and made plans for the future together. But all that changes in the fall of 1893, when Ida's parents decide to become missionaries, and Ida must sail with them to far-off China. Over the next few years, Ida's and Mollie's lives take vastly different paths. Ida is terribly lonely in China and struggles to adjust to her new life. Just when she finally begins to feel at home, her life is further disrupted as war and rebellion erupt in China and she develops asthma. Meanwhile, Mollie's life continues as she always thought it would, but as she hears of Ida's struggles, she longs to do something to help her friend. This was a good historical novel for young readers that brought to life this period in history and the struggles of a young girl as she adjusts to life in a foreign land. I enjoyed the unique historical setting, and Mollie and Ida were likeable characters. I recommend this book to young readers with an interest in this historical period or setting.
