My mom gave me this book so worth reading.
One of my favorite books of all time!!! Two sisters escape being sold into marriage in 1930s Shanghai and endure almost unmentionable horrors in an effort to leave China and start over in America. The sequel, Dreams of Joy, is just as good. Definitely wonderful historical fiction.
If you like Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Sing You Home and Sarah's Key, you'll like Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. - Good book!
november book club . . . great book
Hard to read in spots, but loved it!

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See Lily and Snow Flower become laotong (old sames), a friendship that lasts through their lives and hardships. But things aren't always what they seem. This is a fabulous historical novel about friendship, betrayal, love, and freedom. A sweeping picture of 19th-century China evolves, and I was fascinated. I'm definitely going to watch the movie. Any of See's books are winners for lovers of historical fiction.
"Snow Flower and the Secret Fan": This novel is an unflinching, sometimes brutal portrayal of life for women in 19th century China. It's also the story of a friendship between women that must have been very rare in such a time. The novel depicts the mysterious ritual of foot-binding and the little-known tradition of women's "secret writing," called nu shu , and so opens the hidden world of these women. Yet despite all the restrictions on their lives -- and despite their human flaws -- these women survived and created intimate lifelong relationships with one another. Clearly, there's more than enough fodder for any book club to discuss and debate.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, great book club book!
Everyone should read this book at least once.

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee - "Still a classic after 50 years: One man's struggle for justice when the weight of history will only tolerate so much." Chosen by Carrie F. I've heard of this book and kind of seen the movie and I want to read it because it seems good!
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of my all-time favorite books. With strong characters and a unique point of view, this book about standing up to and overcoming prejudice is a moving read.
