What I liked about the Chinese Cinderella

 

The main character has got to be my favourite character. Reading on how she tries to overcome obstacles in her life and strives to be better in order to attain a sense of belonging causes me to feel sympathy and inspired because of her attitude and ability to stay resilient and move on for her dreams.

 

I like the book due to the writing too, it is beautiful and is able to catch a reader's attention with every sentence, the pacing was steady and not rushed at all.

Determination
Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter - Adeline Yen Mah

What do I enjoy about this book and what did I learn from it?

 

I have learnt that no matter how hard the situation is, keep thriving to be the best you can be and prove to others who thought negatively of people wrong. I enjoyed this book as the author wrote in detail in her biography about her life from start to finish. I felt like I was the writer herself as I was able to share and feel the emotions played in the story. I also learnt to have courage in ourselves even though we feel useless and weak in a terrible situation .I also enjoy how there are many phrases to the story that I did not even know about and would like to apply to my essays . The most important thing that I learnt from this book is to have faith and hope in yourself and to treasure the people who care and love you truly for who you are.

My review
Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter - Adeline Yen Mah

  My favourite character in this book is Adeline Ye, who is the main character and the author of Chinese Cinderella. She described her experience in China when she was very young. I like Adeline Ye the most as I thought that she was very smart and hardworking, which led her ability to solve unpredicted huge problems when she was at a young age. Adeline Ye was also a sympathetic and brave person, unlike her siblings, she was determined to step out and stop her stepmother from beating her baby sister. Hence, Adeline Ye was my favourite character in Chinese Cinderella.

  To be truth, Chinese Cinderella is the best storybook that I had ever read until now. I enjoyed reading this book because of it's extremely exciting climax, it always makes me feel curious about what will be happening at the next second. To me, most importantly, is that the book uses simple English words that can be understood easily. Honestly, I have a poor English standard, thus it is very hard for me to read those English storybooks full of complicated words that I could not understand. After reading Chinese Cinderella, I learnt that resilient is the key to success, even if we failed, we must never give up until we achieved our goal. We must also never "judge a book by it's cover", as we do not know what will be happening to anyone in the future.  

  After all, this will be the end of my review. Thank you for your kind attention! Hope you have a nice day!

Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter - Adeline Yen Mah

This book has make me understood how fortunate i was. Being able to have the love and support from my family and friends, i am truely grateful. But sadly, all these love and support does not seems to be presence on everybody. Ever since i read the book by this amazing and inspiring author, Adeline Yen Mah, i start to be grateful and cherish the things life. From what i have read, Adeline's mother passed away after giving birth to her. After this situation, her family members start to said that she brings 'bad luck' or 'cursed' to the people. Hence, people do not show much attention towards him. Her father remarried to a young French-Asian lady. The stepmother and father do not show much love affection towards Adeline but instead, they show more love to Adeline's sibling. What really admired me was her persistence towards academics. She strive hard in her studies in order to get medal for academics success. This really inspire me to do well in studies. She is someone i looked up to.
