Little Green: Growing Up During the Chinese Cultural Revolution - Chun Yu

A simple book that is a fairly quick read, this book contains memories and stories from a girl growing up during the Great Cultural Revolution in China.

This is a good book for young readers, because it simplifies a serious subject in a way that is easy to understand. I liked the narration style, because it is very straight forward, which I think it beneficial for a young audience.

At times the narration itself is a little confusing, especially when Little Green herself isn't sure what's going on, but it paints a great picture of what it was like growing up in such a time. It is interesting to see the Cultural Revolution from a child's point of view.
