A Chinese proverb says, "Falling leaves return to their roots."
In Chinese Cinderella, Adeline Yen Mah returns to her roots to tell the story of her painful childhood and her ultimate triumph and courage in the face of despair. Adeline's affluent, powerful family considers her bad luck after her mother dies giving birth to her. Life does not get any easier when her father remarries.
She and her siblings are subjected to the disdain of her stepmother, while her stepbrother and stepsister are spoiled. Although Adeline wins prizes at school, they are not enough to compensate for what she really yearns for: the love and understanding of her family. Read by the author.

My heart hurts for this little girl and the way she was treated. Probably one of the saddest books I've ever read. But also one of the most inspirational ones.
I liked everything about this book from start to finish.
I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys reading.
I chose the ratings because it connects to me and makes me feel as if I'm in a different world.
This book is very sad but has an ok ending
I really enjoyed this book
