Excellent writing with a fitting title and ending.
I really love the voice of your main character--very well done.

I'm assuming the 'box'es that she mentions are some some sort of technology--a portable DVD player, or something of the sort. Wouldn't a modern-day Chinese person be quite familiar with that technology?

Your open ending was wonderful--you trusted your reader to get 'the rest of the story'.
What an interesting story. I enjoyed this very much. Thank you for sharing.
I liked this sweet gentle story. Some may think it's a tad weak on the topic but I think it's a unique and original take on the topic. You did a great job making the characters so likable and real.
I like your MC very much. She seems very real and interesting. I could read more about her. Your ending is very good.
Congratulations on a well-deserved 3rd place. So many misconceptions promoted through the media.
