Book Recommendation: Falling Leaves

fallenleaves

Falling Leaves is an autobiographical story about Adeline Yen Mah.  It explores the hardship she endured while living with her father and stepmother. She was born into privilege, but like many girls born into Asian countries, there were cultural forces that sent her reeling backward.  She didn’t have the same luxuries as her brothers, and when compared to her half siblings, she hardly existed at all. With the help of her aunt, Adeline is able to survive at school and beyond. The last chapter I found the most interesting. It dealt with the reunion of the family after a long absence. You can feel the tension slice through the air at times, but also the realization that some things need to be forgiven, but never forgotten.
