Review of Bound by Donna Jo Napoli

I read this book because I was looking for fiction stories to incorporate into my Geography lessons this fall.  This was a story set in ancient China and loosely based on a Cinderella tale.  I usually really enjoy Donna Jo Napoli.  But this one I found plodding, the Cinderella portion only surfaced in the very last chapter or so. It did have a lot of cultural and geographical references though, so I still may use it in my program.
