12. "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See

I just started reading this book last night and I couldn't put it down until my eyes closed and I had to sleep. It's a story about two young girls in nineteenth century China who are paired to be friends and to communicate with a secret "woman's language" called "nu shu". At this point in the book, the two girls have yet to meet and have only sent one message to one another. These girls have both just had their feet bound. (A cruel and very painful process).

I would encourage anyone out there to read it. If you do, please let me know!
