Excellent book

Where does Chinese Cinderella rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best Audiable books I have purchased. My boom club really enjoyed discussing the courage this girl showed

What other book might you compare Chinese Cinderella to and why?

Not sure

What about Felice Yeh’s performance did you like?

That she never gave up trying under terribly cruel situations.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me feel stronger and realize how fortunate I am. It made cry.

Any additional comments?

A great book for an English teacher at high school level to teach from. A must read for schools not sure

must be for children

I didn't see anything to tell me this was for children, but it must be. The narration is like reading to a 3 year old and the story is nothing new.
