My Name Is Number 4
A True Story From the Cultural RevolutionBook - 2008
"Number Four will have a difficult life."--these are the words that were uttered upon Ting-xing Ye's birth. Soon this prophecy would prove only too true. This is the true story of the fourth child in a family torn apart by China's Cultural Revolution. After the death of both of her parents, Ting-xing and her siblings endured brutal Red Guard attacks on their schools and even in their home. At the age of sixteen, Ting-xing was exiled to a prison farm far from the world she knew. How she struggled through years of constant terror while keeping her spirit intact is at the heart of this story. Haunting and inspiring, Ting-xing Ye's personal account of this horrific period in history is one that no reader will soon forget.--From publisher description.
