Product Description
 
A powerful, dual-narrative coming-of-age story set in 2009 China.
Sixteen-year-old Luli has just aged out of the orphanage where she grew up, and her childhood friend Yun helps her get a job at the factory where Yun works. Both girls enjoy the freedom of making their own decisions and earning their own money—until Yun gets pregnant by her boyfriend, who's rumored to be a bride and child trafficker.
China's restrictive family planning laws put Yun in a difficult position: she'll either have to have an expensive abortion or face crippling fines for having a child out of wedlock. When she disappears, it's up to Luli to track her down and find a way to help her.
