“Though mine is but a simple, personal tale of my childhood, please do not underestimate the power of such stories.”

Chinese Cinderella is an autobiographical account written by the very inspiring Adeline Yen Mah. Adeline shares her childhood with readers- what it was like growing up in 1940s China, and what it was like to live in a household where you were unwanted and unloved.
