Adult Summer Reading Club review

From Claire Spencer

Title/Author
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane /Lisa See
Li-yan is a young gal living in the remote hills of China where everyone’s life revolves around the tea industry. Books covers the intricacies of that industry along with the ancient customs and culture of the Aka people. Li-yan is definitely bright and is chosen by her teacher to be educated far beyond what her contemporaries and uses that and her understanding of tea harvesting to make her way in the world outside her very remote village. Along side Li-yan’s story is that of Haley who is of Chinese descent adopted by an professional American couple. It would be a spoiler to say anymore.
How many stars does the book deserve?
☆☆☆☆
