Product description

A real-life dystopia: early 20th century China. Foot-binding, family, a fight to be free. What kind of spirit does it take for a girl to defy an ancient tradition? For Ailin, being the third sister in the Tao family means knowing exactly what is in store. She’s seen her two big sisters go through the painful process of having their feet bound. No more running – ever. No more games. She cannot accept it. So this spirited girl refuses to be bound. What then? Her intended husband breaks their marriage agreement. Shamed by her decision, Ailin’s family refuse to support her any longer. So at the age of fourteen, she must forge her own destiny and find a new way to survive.
