Su-Ling's Treasure, by Ina Hsiung Wong, Is a Breath of Fresh Air

Su-Ling's Treasure, by Ina Hsiung Wong, is a fascinating novel for 8-12 year olds. This coming-of-age story chronicles the trials and triumphs of Su-Ling Chang, a twelve-year-old orphan from Taiwan, who is adopted by an American family in the 1960's. From enduring a bully's taunts to competing in a spelling bee, her courage and determination carry her through.

Wong combines Chinese culture with Christian values. Her authentic voice is a breath of fresh air in children's literature.
