In a drought-stricken corner of rural China, an education can be the difference between a life of crushing poverty and the chance for a better future. Bur for Ma Yan, money is scarce, and the low wages paid for backbreaking work aren't always enough to pay for school fees . . . or even to provide enough food for herself and her family. Ma Yan's heart-wrenching, honest diary chronicles her struggle to escape hardship through her persistent, sometimes desperate, attempts to continue her schooling. Its publication was an international sensation, creating an outpouring of support for this courageous teenager and others like her . . . all due to one ordinary girl's extraordinary diary.
