book: bound -really good

bound is sooooo good it gets into the chinese culture of binding feet and the pain it is and into the family life of people in china at the time. its mostly about a girl about 14 and her parents die and she is left with her step-mother and she treats her like dirt. but she ends up in a good position and her life becomes soooo happy! its really good you should check it out - well next year or from the public libarary. !!!!!

I think I'm going to have to read that one...Here's the summary...
"In a novel based on Chinese Cinderella tales, fourteen-year-old stepchild Xing-Xing endures a life of neglect and servitude, as her stepmother cruelly mutilates her own child's feet so that she alone might marry well." It's by Donna Jo Napoli.
