Read in July, 2010, read count: 1

Foray into the world of "re-educated" Chinese youth in the midst of a communist culture. I found it strained and its abrupt ending didn't help. It was a translation from its original french and maybe this triple translation (Chinese to French to English) caused something to be lost. It is a quick read though.
