Beijing Kid is the remembered stories of a girl, among the first of the one-child children, growing up in the Beijing that straddled both the old and new China. They are stories of rebellion and affection, cruelty and tenderness, pain and joy. Wei Su records the poignancy of family death and the conflict of being her parents' child, but no longer a child in the new Beijing. She experiences the drama of Tian'anmen Square, her family's first TV set, and the mysteries of peer betrayal as signposts along her journey to Chinese womanhood. These stories may have been lived by many, but they have rarely been recorded with such candor and insight.
