According to my colleague, it is shorter, with easier vocab. This is why I 
can't bear the idea of teaching it.

I think I might go with Sallyo's "Dragonsong" suggestion - I was thinking 
of teaching the film Bend it Like Beckham, and Dragonsong is quite 
thematically similar, so it would work well. ie I can make them write a 
comparative essay about pursuing ambitions that your parents don't approve.
