Snow Falling in Spring by Moying LI

Hmmmm. This is a true account of a young woman growing up during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. In many ways it reminded me of Red Scarf Girl, although the protagonist ages to 26 years, so it has more teen appeal. I think it is fascinating and timely, but I didn't get yanked in by the story. Maybe, leaning toward Nay.

It took me forever to get through this book, but I'm glad I did read it all the way through. I can see the timeliness and importance of it, but I agree on the Maybe leaning towards Nay.
