really liked it
bookshelves: ya-lit-256

I absolutely love China, and Cinderella and feet, strangely enough, so I really enjoyed this book. I find the chinese culture fascinating and foot binding repulsive, though I like learning about it. I enjoyed the way it was written and I'm already trying to figure out what Donna Jo Napoli book I want to read once I have time again. The Cinderella connections were there, though not as strongly as they could have been, though I think that brought the book down to reality a bit more. Overall, I have no complaints and enjoyed reading this.

Things to be aware of on a scale of 1-10

Sex 0- There are no sexual intercourses within these pages.

Violence 3- The foot bidding caused me to be squeamish every once in awhile, and there were a few semi graphic moments, but nothing horrific.

Drugs 1- None that I can recall.

Language 1- Mild if any
