I thought my life sucked, and then when I read this book I completely changed my mind!
compared with the first 'chinese cinderella' book, this one seems to be written in more academic style. and thus ...'more boring'. maybe it's because of the fact that the content was the same as the first book and it was disappointing to see there was nothing new. i could learn from the language though. there is actually something new, some little details which make it a reason for you to buy and read the second book.
i like the story a lot.
