Ruby is unlike most little girls in old China. Instead of aspiring to get married, Ruby is determined to attend university when she grows up, just like the boys in her family. Based upon the inspirational story of the author's grandmother, this book is an engaging portrait of a young girl who strives for more and a family who rewards her hard work and courage.
