Summary: In China, at a time when few girls are taught to read or write, Ruby dreams of going to the university with her brothers and male cousins

Description and Table of Contents


Ruby is unlike most little girls in China. Instead of aspiring to get married, Ruby is determined to attend university when she grows up, just like the boys in her family. Based upon the inspirational story of the author's grandmother and accompanied by richly detailed illustrations, Ruby's Wish is an engaging portrait of a young girl who strives for more and a family who reward her hard work and courage.
