A friend of mine lent me this book. The reason I picked it up was because this book was banned and burned in China and I want to know what that was all about. This book was just okay for me. It started out good because I was intrigued to find out more about the main character, Coco. But it gets boring as it moves along. The story is about Coco, a girl who lives in Shanghai, but lives a modern Western lifestyle, which is frowned upon by the older or even general Chinese population. In a way the book is interesting because I get to know the lifestyles of people living in Shanghai and the dynamics between Eastern and Western culture in Shanghai.
