Product description

Review

Warm, affecting, a compelling pleasure. Manages that rare fictional feat of shifting forever the angle from which you look at the world (Daily Mail)

A sensitively handled rites-of-passage account . . . has the unmistakable ring of authenticity (Metro)

Deceptively delicate . . . the stumbling endurance of Kimberley, the bond between mother and daughter, and the clever use of Chinese culture and tradition make for more than a salutary read (Guardian)

Incredibly honest and powerful, written with unflinching directness . . . a truly amazing story that'll leave you full of admiration and affection for the characters (Easy Living)

Engagingly narrated, irresistible (Independent)

Astonishing (Vogue)
