Journal Entry 1 by stephjb from Torquay, Devon United Kingdom on Saturday, October 05, 2013

7 out of 10

An interesting glimpse into the life of a Chinese girl from a wealthy family living in Tianjin and Shanghai in the 1940s. The book is a Puffin and intended for a younger audience so does not go into great depth about the political and social situation in China at the time although there is an overview at the end. It is more concerned with scenes from Adeline's early life with which older children could identify. The book was very quick to read and has inspired me to look out for the 'adult' version of Adeline's autobiography, Falling Leaves.
