Fantastic historical adventure
Loved this story, about a Chinese girl in 1906 San Francisco who impersonates an heiress to get into an all white school, but then the historic SF earthquake hits, shaking up all her plans. Mercy Wong is fierce, lovable, hilarious, someone to root for, and cry with. If you enjoy stories with strong female friendships, listen to this one. The narrator does an excellent job; love her accents, pacing and voice acting. A perfect read.
