Tristin Roholt | 3 comments It's about a Chinese girl. There's a law that says each family can only have two children and they want one of them at least to be a boy. Her mother is pregnant and they pray for a boy because they already have a girl, but they do have another girl and they are going to give her to an orphanage but the other girl decides to run away so they don't have to give her up. She hides on a fishing boat for a while and goes to Hong Kong and ends up on a rice patty with an older woman at some point, that's all I remember. I read it in 2006 so it's a little older.
