Hi everyone, I love working in our 'fantastic' Library here at KNS. I have the best job in the school (don't tell anyone). Come in to read, use the computers, play in the games room, 'explore' in the Maori Cultural Room, colour/draw, use the listening post and so much more..... We are getting new books all the time into our Library - make sure you keep checking our 'new book' stand and also our 'as featured on the KNS Library Blog' stand. Be sure to read them and write a review! Mrs Lynskey
In this book Adeline Yen Mah (her Chinese name is Jun-ling) describes her life in China during the Second World War. She was born into a rich and privileged family but was thought to be bad luck due to the death of her mother during complications in giving birth to her. She was neglected by her father, Joseph Yen, a successful businessman, and her brothers and sisters. When her father remarried, "Niang" (Mother) treats her and her siblings coldly while spoiling her own children and Jun-ling's older sister. Eventually she is sent to live at a boarding school in Hong Kong, where she is really happy. Her friends become suspicious because no-one visits her or brings her gifts.
A very interesting and informative read.
