In 1966, twelve-year-old Ji-li Jiang had everything: brains, the admiration of her classmates, and a bright future in Communist China. But that year China's leader, Mao Ze-dong, launched the Cultural Revolution, and Ji-li's world began to fall apart. Over the next few years, her family was humiliated by former friends and neighbors. They lived in constant terror of arrest, and when her father was finally detained, Ji-li faced the most difficult dilemma of her life. This is the true story of one family's courage and determination during one of the most terrifying eras of the twentieth century.
