    A Short But Powerful StoryThis is an extremely simple, short story of a seven year old boy born to Chinese parents during the Mao Communist regime in a nondescript village in China His parents were factory workers, not too educated, not too smart, many times didn t have enough to eat, but managed to put out their share of the work so they were never in trouble After three miscarriages when each Chinese family could only have one child, the Chinese government forced her to have a tubal ligation A Short But Powerful StoryThis is an extremely simple, short story of a seven year old boy born to Chinese parents during the Mao Communist regime in a nondescript village in China His parents were factory workers, not too educated, not too smart, many times didn t have enough to eat, but managed to put out their share of the work so they were never in trouble After three miscarriages when each Chinese family could only have one child, the Chinese government forced her to have a tubal ligation so she would never bear children She got pregnant anyway, to her great joy, and carried the fetus seven months They named their son Ding Yi He was born smaller than normal, neither very bright nor very dumb, managed to get by, but by the time he was three years old, he showed an amazing ability at playing soccer Although otherwise he was not athletically inclined, he could out play other children three or four years older It was like he had this amazing dexterity and could out maneuver anyone His mother, Zhao Yuhua, knew that if he could be selected to be on a national children s soccer team, this would furnish the family with extra income and they could move They would suffer so She finally persuaded a school in Beijing to send a scout to come and watch him He came and the school paid Ding Yi s and her way by the cheapest train fare to travel to Beijing.Even though the story is short, I don t want to betray the ending, which has quite a twist and unexpected for American readers, but perhaps not for any Chinese who lived during the Mao regime The story caught me from the very first, kept me glued while the words flowed describing the tremendous efforts that Zhao Zuhua went through to make her son famous I was reading on a Kindle so I was caught short when it ended so quickly, but the author made his point I feel this is a remarkable tale, and we all can empathize with it I recommend it
