it was amazing

My heart was literally shattered into pieces when I read this book, page by page. It was really heart breaking when you find out how cruel daughters were treated back then in China. They were killed right after they were born, they were abandoned on streets and rubbish bins, and lots more. It made me feel, as a girl, really lucky to be born in the time where women are as respected as men does. The author Xinran has travelled around in China just to witness how cruel the daughters were treated, and how heart-broken the mothers that lost her daughters were. She compiled and put her experiences in this book, which would bring tears into your eyes. Such a lovely book should be read by all, especially daughters, to realize how fortunate they are. This book deserves my five star rating.
