Being a teenager is tough, but being a teenager in modern China is tougher. After all - the nationwide, nine-hour-long college admissions test can only be taken once a year, and it's the sole factor in deciding what college you get into. Mei-Mei Huang, being an only child, has to figure out how to make her poor, working-class parents proud of her, which means keeping quiet about the things she wants. For Mei-Mei, that equals taking a bus at the grimy crack of dawn and booking herself into a college-exam prep boarding school. People say that that teenage drama is bad, but teenage obedience might just be something worse.
