Bound by Donna Jo Napoli

This book, Bound, is like the Cinderella story. The main character whose name is Xing Xing is treated very badly by her stepmother after her father died. Her mother died before her father and her father remarried after his first wife died because he wanted a boy but he never got one. But Xing Xing is their servant, cleaning for them, cooking, doing laundry. The stepmother really didn't regard her as a daughter of her husband and Xing Xing was really sad and just didn't feel like she fit in. Very good book. Rating: 5 out of 5
