With a powerful voice that speaks of the harsh realities of growing up female in a family and society that kept girls in emotional chains, Falling Leaves is a rare, authentic portrait of twentieth-century China. A compelling, painful, and ultimately triumphant story of a girl's journey into adulthood, Adeline's story is a testament to the most basic of human needs: acceptance, love, and understanding.

"[Mah's] compelling story is a testament to the transcendence of moral fortitude and forgiveness."—Booklist (American Library Association)
