Reader recommendation: A Thread of Sky

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

A Thread of Sky by Deanna Fei is a wonderful read and a great introduction if you are about to tour Beijing and Shanghai. Fei paints vivid images of the lively streets, and her ability to narrate the story from so many viewpoints is excellent.
