Story of two sisters growing up in China and how their lives changed after the death of Chairman Mao.

I was hoping for something a bit longer and with some higher stakes, but I still enjoyed this one. The artwork is terrific -- the illustrator does a really good job at finding a style appropriate for depicting ancient and almost-modern China.

There's an Austin connection -- the author and illustrator (who are married) met in Austin. It turns out she married a rather handsome guy -- lucky lady!

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this graphic novel. There is a variety of styles presented through the book, but the same story line. As the story goes along, we begin to form the experiences of the main character and how fortunate she is with her childhood because her parents have worked so hard to give her what they could. By the end of the story she is starting to form a well rounded character; especially when she see first hand how other children her age live.
