Meet the Authors
In a small village in China, Sisi is a model sister, daughter, and student. She brews tea for her grandfather, leads recitations at school, and helps care for her youngest brother. But when students are chosen for the Red Guard, Sisi is rejected. Worse, she is shamed for her family's past as former landowners who have no place in the new Communist order. Sisi will face choices between family and nation, between safety and justice. With the tide of the Cultural Revolution rising, Sisi must decide if she will swim against the current, or get swept up in the wave.
