The second masterpiece of Adeline Yen Mah is Chinese Cinderella which is also written about herself like her first stunning success – Falling Leaves. Comparing to Falling Leaves, Chinese Cinderella is easier to understand, so I recommend all young readers to read this before reading Falling Leaves.
Adeline Yen Mah's mother died after giving birth to her and that was when people started treating her like dirt as she was considered bad luck. Feeling unwanted and useless, isolation, humiliation, these were what made up Adeline's childhood. She not only received emotional abuse, but also physical ones. With the harm and ill-treatment from her stepmother and siblings, she tried hard to get her father's attention but all he did was ignoring and avoiding her. In the midst of all these awful things, Adeline somehow finds a way to survive, get accepted and to prove her worth. Chinese Cinderella is the compelling story about the brave and strong-willed "Chinese Cinderella".
Chinese Cinderella is yet another one of my favourites. Other than the anguish of Adeline which makes the book really touching, it is also morally encouraging as it can teach readers – especially teenagers – to live on any difficulties going on in their way-to-go lives
