Scroll up to the next post for my review of Lisa See’s Shanghai Girls.
This is a solid piece of historical fiction – it’s told in the first person, in the present tense, so it’s a very up-close-and-personal account of Pearl Louie’s experience as an immigrant, as well as detailing the hierarchy of various family relationships.
Thanks to the generous offer of the publisher, Random House, via TLC Book Tours, I’m able to offer copies of Shanghai Girls to TWO lucky readers of She is Too Fond of Books!
