Description

Jasmina, a young girl in India, and her brother, Samir, are sold as child slaves and must learn to survive living on the streets of India.

My Review:

This book is written for young adults, and is in a format appealing for them. However, it is a story of a young girl sold with her brother into slavery. The subject matter in itself is mature and something to be approached with children and young adults with wisdom. It is important to teach our children about this so they can be on the lookout.

I found the writing style a little confusing at times, there was one whole chapter that seemed to be placed out of order in the book. I am not sure if that was because I had an eBook, but it was confusing there.

This story though, shows the important work that needs to be done and is being done by loving people throughout the world, but especially in India. Children are being sold into slavery in the USA as well as in other nations. It is very sad to read of the plight of these children, but so needed.

The story is written without a graphic storytelling, but it is enough that I would recommend this for high school age teens.
