Description

Gr 7 Up—Jo Kuan knows that because she's Chinese, she does not fit anyone's expectations in 1890

Atlanta, but she doesn't mind. She's happy to be unobtrusive, making hats for the fashionable women in

town and staying out of trouble with her adoptive father, Old Gin. But when she loses her job at the hat shop,

Jo must find work elsewhere, returning to the household of one of the most important families in town to

serve as a lady's maid for their daughter. Saddled with an ungrateful mistress, Jo must face the inequalities in

her city. Frustrated, she begins penning an anonymous advice column as 'Miss Sweetie,' dispensing opinions

on everything from fashion to suffragettes. Jo is happy with anonymity, but soon Atlanta is abuzz with

curiosity about Miss Sweetie, leading Jo to wonder if remaining quiet and safe is the most important thing or

if there are reasons to speak up. Along the way, she uncovers truths about her own past that call into

question even more of the inequalities she sees in the present. Though society may try to push aside those it

sees as different, Jo demonstrates that everyone has a place and a story to be told. VERDICT Unflinching in

its portrayals of racism yet ultimately hopeful and heartfelt, this narrative places voices frequently left out of

historical fiction center stage. Recommended for any collection.—Zoë McLaughlin, Michigan State

University Read more “A triumph of storytelling. The Downstairs Girl is a bold portrait of this

countryâ€s past, brilliantly painted with wit, heartbreak, and unflinching honesty. Everyone needs to read

this book.― —Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval“This deftly

plotted novel shimmers with honesty, wisdom, compassion, and gorgeous writing, but it is Jo herself who

shines the brightest in this sparkling tale—her keen wit, quiet courage, and growing determination. Prepare

to fall headlong in love with The Downstairs Girl. I certainly did!― —Robin LaFevers, New York Times

bestselling author of the His Fair Assassin trilogy“In this jewel of a story, Stacey Lee brings to life a

distant time populated by people who are at once familiar and delightfully new. By shining a light on the

lives of those whom history usually ignores, Lee gives us a marvelous gift: An entirely new and riveting

look at our past.' —Candace Fleming, award-winning author of The Family Romanov “Clever, funny,

and poignant, The Downstairs Girl is Stacey Lee at her best. I adored the cast of sassy, brave characters, as

well as Leeâ€s subtle and graceful look at racism in the Reconstruction-era South. Every school and

library should have this book on their shelves.― —Evelyn Skye, New York Times bestselling author of

The Crownâ€s Game “The Downstairs Girl is a thoughtful, imaginative and surprising look at a

period of American history that feels both distant and all too close. Jo is a sharp and compelling narrator,

and I couldâ€ve stayed forever in her downstairs hideout, watching the world through her eyes.

Immersive, important, and thoroughly entertaining, The Downstairs Girl  sparkles with all of Stacey

Leeâ€s signature humor, charm, warmth, and wisdom.― —Kelly Loy Gilbert, Morris Award Finalist

for Conviction“The Downstairs Girl holds a mirror to our present issues while giving us a detailed

and vibrant picture of life in the past . . . The challenges Jo faces ring true for the novelâ€s historical


setting, but they will also ring strong for Leeâ€s contemporary readers. As a young person, Jo is

resoundingly American—an observant, open-minded, forward-thinking new woman with a Chinese face

and a Southern accent. Her engaging voice, along with her emerging self-reliance and maturity, drive the

novel and make her a character we can easily relate to. Punctuating her narrative with Miss Sweetieâ€s

tart and pun-filled advice, Joâ€s witty and arresting turns of phrase and her positive outlook give

buoyancy to her story even in its dire moments. As Jo tackles all injustices head-on, and tension rises, the

book races to a soundly satisfying conclusion.' —The New York Times“Vividly rendered, intriguingly

plotted . . . Joâ€s example of resistance and hope is sure to resonate with todayâ€s readers.― —The

Washington Post*'In her latest work, Lee continues to demonstrate that Chinese people were present—and

had a voice—in American history. She deftly weaves historical details with Jo's personal story of finding a

voice and a place for herself in order to create a single, luminous work. An optimistic, sophisticated

portrayal of one facet of Chinese-American—and simply American—history.' —Kirkus Reviews, starred

review*'Though society may try to push aside those it sees as different, Jo demonstrates that everyone has a

place and a story to be told. Unflinching in its portrayals of racism yet ultimately hopeful and heartfelt, this

narrative places voic
