After her mother dies giving birth to her, Adeline is considered by her family to be unlucky.

Not all youth necessarily understand that there are cultures out there that are different from their own. Even though the experiences detailed in this book occur long before any of today’s youth were alive, they will still be able to glean valuable insights on how other cultures might differ. They will also be able to empathize with the main character and understand how to deal with strong emotions. Readers who are interested in history, Chinese culture, or real-life fairy tale tie-ins will enjoy this book.
Alright, I am making one final push to finish the Popsugar Reading Challenge for 2015 (click here if you want to start planning for the 2016 reading challenge). Here’s a link to my 2015 list so far.
I need help with these three items:
A funny book
A book a friend recommended
Keep in mind that I mostly stick to YA (especially now that I only have a month left to finish these). You can look at my Goodreads page to check if I’ve already read something. Please give me your recommendations!
