The Downstairs Girl
by Stacey Lee

By day, seventeen-year-old-Jo Kuan works as a lady's maid for the cruel daughter of one of Atlanta's wealthiest men. At night she moonlights as "Dear Miss Sweetie," an anonymous author of a newspaper advice column. As her column becomes popular, she uses the power of the pen to address some of society's ills. Jo is witty, clever, and sometimes a saucebox, but she has lived her life in the shadows. Is she ready to step into the light?

This book tells about the little know history of Chinese being brought to the South to take the place of the Negro slaves after they were freed. Told with humor and grace.
