Wishlist Wednesday: Great Call of China


A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.
(hosted by Book Chick City & Breaking the Spine)


Great Call of China
by Cynthea Liu
release date: 19 February 2009
Chinese-born Cece was adopted when she was two years old by her American parents. Living in Texas, she’s bored of her ho-hum high school and dull job. So when she learns about the S.A.S.S. program to Xi’an, China, she jumps at the chance. She’ll be able to learn about her passion — anthropology — and it will give her the opportunity to explore her roots. But when she arrives, she receives quite a culture shock. And the closer she comes to finding out about her birth parents, the more apprehensive she gets. Enter Will, the cute guy she first meets on the plane. He and Cece really connect during the program. But can he help her get accustomed to a culture she should already know about, or will she leave China without the answers she’s been looking for?

Why it's on my wishlist
Recommended to me by Ari =) I'm taking the China Reading Challenge this year, but I want to read this more because I've had some direct experience with the one-child policy in China (my little brother was technically "illegal").

Ooo I'm going to have a giveaway for this book soon!!! It's going to be awesome. So stay tuned (in about 2 weeks).

But it was cute. Not too heavy, while still covering an important issue.

And I can't wait for Crossing! You and Ah Yuan brought it to my attention :)
