A Thread Unbroken Summary
Chai and Josi share a bond that transcends ordinary friendship. While Chai has always been Josi's protector - ever since they were toddlers, growing up together in a small Chinese village - she finds herself helpless when they are both abducted from their families and sold to faraway strangers. In their new home, with the family of the fisherman who bought them, their old lives are torn away piece by piece. But Chai knows she must stay strong if they're to have any chance of escaping.
A Thread Unbroken Reviews
"Kay Bratt, an advocate for children from China, provides a fascinating glimpse of childhood in the world's largest country. The main characters are young girls with a very loving father, dispelling the myth that Chinese do not value daughters. Yet it also shows the shadowy side of the girls' lives when they are abducted to be sold, a practice that lamentably has not been completely suppressed. You will learn about the joys and hardships of growing up female in Asia, with plenty of thrills along the way to keep you reading." - Mingmei Yip, author of Skeleton Women and Song of the Silk Road
