Thanks for highlighting this. I loved Lisa See's other books and now I'm going out to hunt this one down.


Thank you so much for sharing this! Hooray for a sequel!!! :)


I loved, loved, loved Snowflower and have forgotten about her other one until now. I have two new books I could read of hers! Thanks!


Sounds great!


I loved Snowflower, so I can't wait to read Shanghi Girls. Thanks for sharing info about the sequel.

I have just finished reading The Shanghai Girls. See has an amazing ability to evoke deep emotions in the reader yet she uses no graphic descriptions or four letter words. My congratulations to her on an exceptional book, written with incredible skill, which permits the reader to experience the war and post war lives of Chinese Americans. Keep up the good work.


I've just finished SnowFlower and the Secret Fan, and absolutely loved loved it!
The tears wouldn't stop coming towards the end, and I knew that this would be a book that would stay with me forever.
I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of Lisa's novels!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
