My Half of the Sky was a Forbes Book Club Pick and a Booksense Pick of the Month. Listen to what people think:
"Your heart will tear apart right along with Li Hui's as she struggles to 'hold up her half of the sky' . . . This is a powerful coming of age story." --Keri Holmes, The Kaleidoscope
"You'll be rooting all the way for Li Hui as she struggles, ahead of the curve, to be her own woman in an emerging, modern China. Jana McBurney-Lin's MY HALF OF THE SKY is a beautiful, witty, touching debut novel." --Thomas Sawyer, Head Writer, "Murder She Wrote"
“It is a rare women's novel that sensitively describes the life of a young educated woman in modern-day China in its full complexity, without resorting to unnecessary sentimentalism. The author's deep knowledge of the realities of life in China and Singapore makes the reading extra rewarding.”--Friends of the Museum Newsletter, Singapore, June-July 2008
