This is an auction for WAHU DIARY: THE MYSTERY OF MY DAUGHTER LULU, by Emily Prager.

"This moving story of a single mother's two-month trip to Wuhu, China, in 2001 with her five-year-old adopted daughter, LuLu, combines memoir, travelogue and a bit of philosophy. For anyone considering multicultural adoption or already involved in one, this compelling work offers encouragement and an example of how to help an adopted child get acquainted with her roots and build her sense of self. For others, it provides a wonderful view of a part of China seldom written about. Readers will also gain insight into the strengthening bonds between children and their adopted parents and the insecurities both feel. Enthusiastically recommended."
- Library Journal (US)

"Prager is a wonderful writer, able to merge feelings about adoption, motherhood and her own childhood with descriptions of the country and her daughter's reactions to her travels. . . . An important book."
- San Jose Mercury News

"The one-child policy in Communist China has been a boon to Americans wishing to adopt a child. Because of the Chinese preference for boys, if the extra child is a girl, she is often put up for adoption. Novelist Prager's adopted girl was actually left in the street, so her background was very incomplete. Prager returned to China with LuLu, now four years old, to learn about the place where LuLu was born. What she found surprised her."
- Booklist (US)

"Highly personal. . . . Filled with fascinating information. . . . A welcome addition to the growing literature on adoption.”
- BookPage (US)
