Book Review: Shanghai Girls by Lisa See

I learned alot from this book and what the Chinese people experienced through the 1930's-40's. It was beautifully written. I was taken from Shanghai, to the country-side, to Los Angeles seemlessly by Lisa See's vivid descriptions. I could smell the food, hear the streets, and feel the cloths on me as she described them.

I had no idea the plight of the Chinese people during this time and it was heartbreaking to read. I have a much better understanding of their customs and culture now. I admire how these families stay together no matter what.

I love a story that can take me away, fill me with emotion, teach me something new, and inspire me. This novel does exactly that.
