Contemporary China is brought to life through the exciting adventures of a young heroine. Li takes a spill while running an errand on her bicycle. As she recovers from the shock, a ghost approaches her and promises to help her if she helps him. To find eternal rest he needs an honorable burial, and only Li can help him contact his family. Conjuring up the look and feel of Shanghai today, this gorgeously illustrated, large-format book tells a story of family, honor, and justice. A glossary of Chinese words and an author's note that places the story within the context of 20th-century China round out the book.
