About the Author
Praise For Red Thread Sisters…
"My heart felt bigger after reading this story, somehow truer."
-Kathi Appelt, National Book Award Finalist and Newbery Honor winner
"A tender, nuanced novel."
-Elizabeth Partridge, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor winner
"A heartwarming, un-put-down-able story about the kind of friendship that is more like family."
-Courtney Sheinmel, author of SINCERELY and POSITIVELY
"Wen’s journey is perfectly paced as she comes to accept her new life. . . . Heartwarming and joyous."
-School Library Journal
"A moving and engaging experience for readers. A fine addition to both the coming-of-age genre and books sensitively dealing with cross-cultural adoption."
"Wen's selflessness and determination are poignant but not overly sentimental, and the story's harsh truths about children in need are sensitively expressed."
"Beautifully developed. . . . Heartfelt yet never sentimental."
"I have never read a book that displayed the true meaning of friendship in a better way than Red Thread Sisters, and I can't recommend it highly enough."
