I enjoyed this book to a great extent. It truly displays the life of a young girl in China and gives a gruesome description of foot-binding and what went on in families in China when men ran the house. Some people don't realize the terrible living conditions of those 'big footed' women. Their feet weren't big, they had just regular sized feet, but 'men' liked women with small feet... Why? Probably so they could feel 'in power' and manipulate their wive/s. That is depressing and not very humanly. Men are equal to Women, as Whites are equal to Blacks. Did you know... Some Chinese women still have bound feet because it would hurt too much to unbind them and walk on them...

I really enjoyed this book, but it was also very sad and depressing what these girls had to endure. But, I also found it interesting to learn about our history.

This book was very terrific! I'd reccomend it to young and old readers who enjoy a book so much that they can't put it down. It has short chapters and great description for young readers, and is interesting and exciting for those older readers. It is so good, that when i finished it, my mom and aunt wanted to read it. Plus, the characters are very interesting. I rccomend it to everyone who likes a good read,too!!!

I have this book in real life, I'm reading it in school. I'm on page 34 and I'm so interested in it I always am curious whats going to happen next. I would recomend this book to anybody that likes really good books and who loves learning new things about other states and there traditional honors like having there feet bound, and if yur curious what bound means then read this book! It will teach what bound means and hiw they bound there feet.

The main character stands up for what she beleives in. She thinks that the old ways of china should be discontinued. In the end she ends up running a restrant in Aemrica. Get the book to find out how this happens.
