As China opens itself to the world and undertakes historic economic reforms, a little girl in the southern city of Guangzhou immerses herself in a world of fantasy and foreign influences while grappling with the mundane vagaries of Communist rule. She happily immigrates to Oakland, California, expecting her new life to be far better in all ways than life in China. Instead, she discovers crumbling schools, unsafe streets, and racist people. In the land of the free, she comes of age amid the dysfunction of a city’s brokenness and learns to hate in the shadows of urban decay. This is the unforgettable story of her journey from China to an American ghetto and how she prevailed.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Chinese Girl in the Ghetto is a heartfelt, enthralling and deeply honest memoir. Read it for a unique perspective.


Ying Ma’s book is both a tribute to freedom when so combined and a troubling reminder that the combination is not spontaneous.


The pace is quick: You can finish this book in one evening, and the narrative never lags. I’d definitely recommend this book to others.


I highly recommend this book for readers interested in modern China, or American urban affairs. I also recommend it to younger readers, who may find in Ying Ma a kindred spirit navigating the difficult shoals of adolescence and young adulthood.


Sometimes funny, often tragic, but always brutally honest, Chinese Girl in the Ghetto is a gripping read that challenges us to question what freedom really means.
