Read full description of the books Katherine:This was a fascinating study of the human spirit, and how it opens or closes in response to what life throws our way. I really appreciated being given the inner view of Zebra's experience - as a child and teen laborer in Maoist China, and a young adult in post-revolutionary China, opening her mind to the ideas of her American teacher - the "foreign devil." Often fiction can give such a deep and visceral sense of time/place/experience. There were a number of passages that were so beautiful that I gasped out loud. I have a feeling I'll hold these ideas and images for a long time, and that they'll inform my understanding of and compassion for people who've lived under oppressive regimes.
