This book is a part of a series called Once Upon a Time which is a whole bunch of retellings of fairy tales. Wild Orchid is a retelling of the ballad of Mulan. I really liked this book. It was about how a young girl finds love in her family (and someone else, but i wont give it away) and brings them honor by saving China and being very courageous.  The setting was in china which wsa something new for me.It was  pretty interesting to read about their culture and some of there traditions and rules etc.  Unlike some other fairytales, this book shows how women can be just as strong and brave as men and even save the day 🙂
