Henry Lien. Pearl Rehabilitative Colony for Ungrateful Daughters. (Asimovs December 2013)

asimovs201312Another teen schoolgirl angst story for those of you who like that sort of thing. The setting, as the title suggests, is a reform school for daughters in a patriarchical imperial China, where martial arts and ice skating are combined. If you like teen girls in reform school settings, you’ll doubtless appreciate the vicious nuns who keep a tight rein on them. And the cover, illustrating the story, will please those of you who like to look at pictures of teen schoolgirls in very short pleated skirts with thigh length stockings.

Hmmm, I wonder if the story was about teen boys and had a swimming element, whether the cover would have had a teenage boy wearing speedos?
