Mia left China as a small child, destined to be protected within the loving arms of an all-American family. She is grateful for her life, but now that she is on the precipice of total independence, she feels she is missing something. Determined to learn more of her past, Mia hops a plane to the country of her birth. As she follows the red thread back through her motherland, she is enamored by the history and culture of her heritage--strengthening her resolve to find the truth of her beginnings, even as Chinese officials struggle to keep it buried. With an unwavering spirit of determination, Mia battles the forces stacked against her and uncovers a truth that will change her life.



“Kay Bratt's haunting tale of a girl coming of age and new found discoveries is a book that will forever remain with me. Every street is vividly detailed, every step Mia takes you are there with her.”
— Book Referees, January 2012

Chasing China was a beautiful story that many will love as much as I did. The story is engulfing and I found myself needing to know what Mia could find out about her history. I was rooting for her the whole time. The other characters as well are well-developed and all play a huge part in Mia's story.”

“Chasing China tells the tough story of adoption from China. A story that is tough and tender, bitter and sweet. As an adoptive mother myself, I felt very connected. We hope to build bridges between the home of our children and their homeland. This book is one of the tools that will help us do so.” — Laotong, Amazon Reviewer, Feb 2012

“This past summer I went to China, and the feelings from way back when came rising to the surface. Like in the story, I also went to my orphanage and searched for pieces of my mysterious past. Everything that Mia felt I could perfectly relate to. Chasing China just happened to speak to me on a personal level.”

Chasing China is a hauntingly beautiful story that is powerful and compelling, it begs to be read by readers who have an interest in the adoption process, and who embrace human interest stories.”
