“It will also remind you of who you are. Jade is sharp, but not cutting. It is beautiful even though you can see its flaws.” – Chapter 7, pg. 51

What I Liked:

1. I loved this book! I read it all in one day and adored it. It was well-paced and exciting, and I really loved the characters.

2. The setting was really cool, too. Going from a tiny Chinese town to a bustling American city was really interesting, and you could really see Jade Moon change as the settings changed.

3. I really liked Jade Moon and Sterling Promise. They were really well done characters, and I really cared about what happened to them.

4. The part where she was dressing up as a guy and working for Mr. Hon was really well written. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time!

What I Didn’t Like:

1. I wanted to know what happened to Jade Moon’s father, but never found out. 😛

2. I really didn’t think the cover matched the book at all. It’s set in 1923, and the cover made me think it was a modern day novel.

3. There’s no sequel! 😦

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think of it? Do you have any recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments below.
