Jade Blossom can never go beyond her family's Inner Court. Every girl from a good family in seventeenth-century Korea must stay home and learn to sew and work in the kitchen to prepare her for future life in her husband's Inner Court.
Jade has other interests. She longs to take trips to the mountains and the marketplace. Jade won't stop thinking about the world beyond the high walls of her home. Then one day she secretly sets off to do what no girl her age has ever done before.
Impatient with the constraints put on her as an aristocratic girl living in Korea during the seventeenth century, twelve-year-old Jade Blossom determines to see beyond her small world. Her curiosity takes her on adventures that only boys can have.
