Grade 7 Reviews An Ocean Apart, A World Awayby Lensey Namioka
Review by: Melanie K.
Ohio, Grade 7
An Ocean Apart, a World Away is about a girl named Xueyan and her very adventurous romantic life. Xueyan has always wanted to be a doctor and nows her chance.It also tells you a lot about the culture in the Manchu dynasty and also when the dynasty ended.
I liked this book because it isn't like normal romantic stories. It is very adventurous and also tells you a lot about the culture in china only a couple years ago.
