Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. This is truly a great read. It is a powerfully emotional story about two Chinese immigrant sisters and their journey to a new life. It is both heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time. Some of it was emotionally difficult to read, but it is one of those books that changed my perspective. I highly recommend it.
This is the first book from Lisa See that I've read, but I plan to read all of her novels eventually.
I'm also a fan of Denise Hildreth, author of THIS cute series. I have read all of her books except this one:
Hurricanes in Paradise. I've been trying to get this one from my local library for the past few months, and it's always checked out. I even put it on reserve and still haven't got it yet. I might just have to break down and buy it.
