Summary

China,1898. An unwanted and unwelcome fourth daughter, Four-Girl, isn't even given a proper name by her family when she's born. She finds friendship - and a name: Vibiana - in the most unlikely of places: Christianity.But China is a dangerous place for Christians. The Boxer Rebellion is in full swing, and bands of young men roam the countryside, murdering Westerners and Chinese Christians alike. Torn between her nation and her Christian friends, Vibiana will have to decide where her true loyalties lie . . . and whether she is willing to die for her faith. ---- Boxers & Saints is an innovative new work in two volumes - the parallel stories of two young people caught up on opposite sides of a violent rift. American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang brings his clear-eyed storytelling and trademark magical realism to the complexities of the Boxer Rebellion and lays bare the foundations of extremism, rebellion, and faith.---- Discover the other side of the Boxer Rebellion in Boxers - the companion volume to Saints.
