When Adeline Yen Mah's mother dies giving birth to her, the family rejects Adeline. In this vivid autobiography, the author describes her, life, struggles and how she comes to be accepted by her family at the time of the Cultural Revolution in China.

Teaching points
Excellent for multicultural work, as it is set against a background of life in Japanese occupied China. Ideal for exploring narrative structure as it is told simply as a series of snapshots. Comparative work opportunities as it includes the original story of Cinderella that originated in the Tang dynasty (AD 618-908).
