Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

When China's Communist Party detained Ji-li's father, the 12-year-old was faced with the most difficult choice of her life. She could denounce her father and break with her family--or she could refuse to testify and sacrifice her future in her beloved Communist Party. A "Publishers Weekly" Best Book of 1997.


Review:

"It's a very painful, very personal--therefore accessible--history."

Kirkus, 09/01/1997

Review:

"Seemingly simple, this account brings readers fact to face with understanding the way every society has assumptions about choices and values....Jiang's memoir changes the way we see the world and ourselves."

Carol Edwards, Five Owls, September/October 1997

I have never doubted what I was told: Heaven and earth are great, but greater still is the kindness of the Communist Part; father and mother are dear, but dearer still is Chairman Mao. In 1966 Ji-li Jian was 12 years old. And oustanding student and a leader of her class, she had everything: brains, ability, the admiration of her peers -- and a shining future in Chairman Mao s New China. But all that changed with the advent of the Cultural Revolution, when intelligence became a crime and a wealthy family background invited persecution or worse. For the next few years Ji-li and her family were humilated and reviled by their former friends, neighbors and colleagues and lived in constant terror of arrest. At last, with the detention of her father, Ji-li was faced with the most dreadful decision of her life: denounce him, or refuse to testify and sacrifice her future in her beloved Communist Party.Told with simplicity, innocence and grace, this unforgettable memoir gives a child s-eye view of a terrifying time in 20th-century history -- and of one family s indomitable courage under fire.
