Read in January, 2000

Falling Leaves is a an absorbing memoir that reads like fiction. Adeline Yen Mah tells of her experiences growing up as the last born child of her father's first marriage. She is later mistreated by her step-mother and step-siblings. Its a sad story about a girl's struggle to make her way through life. This was a popular read in my book club and we had a great discussion about it.
