elissa (LibrarianElissa) | 16 comments BOUND by Donna Jo Napoli is a re-telling of the traditional Chinese Cinderella story, set in China a very long time ago. I'm not sure how old it has to be to be considered ancient. THE KITE RIDER by Geraldine McCaughrean is set in 13th c. China, which probably isn't ancient, but certainly a long time ago. The 2nd is more middle grade/middle school, but I'm sure there are high schoolers who would enjoy it, too. BOUND is definite YA.
