Like spilled water

Liu, Jennie
Na has always lived in the shadow of her younger brother, Bao-bao, her parents' cherished son. When Bao-bao dies suddenly, Na realizes how little she knew him. Did he really kill himself because of a low score on China's all-important college entrance exam? She learns that Bao-bao had many secrets-- and that his death may not be what it seems. When Na's parents expect her to quit her vocational school and go to work, it forces her to confront traditional expectations for and pressures on young women. -- adapted from jacket
