"Wrong, wrong, wrong. Her mother's words sounded like a gong, over and over, tolling the doom of her destiny-- a Chinese born the undesired gender. These words permeated the youth of author Bambi Shen, who, like all Chinese women, has had to content with the legacy of millennia of cultural subordination and oppression of women. This memoir paints life in World War II Japanese concentration camps from Bambi's three-year-old eyes. Still, surviving concentration camps and wars seemed easier than breaking free from her mother's criticisms and negative prophecies. Bambi's escape from these took the form of academic success, enabling her to receive a Catholic scholarship and make her way to college in the United States."--P. [4] of cover.
