A memoir of the author growing up in China during the 1920s. She was the daughter of Americans living there, but since she grew up in the 20s, the bobbed hair and the button up shoes were just as foreign to me as the Chinese details-- and just as interesting. It seemed like such an innocent age, but was obviously very dangerous because of the political changes occurring in China. A charming, fun read.
