greatest book ever
This is one of the greatest books I ever read. It speaks to you, makes you feel what this little girl was feeling. It shows you how cruel and crude people are. After reading this book all I wanted to do is learn more about this wicked, atrocious, painful crime. This book is beyond good and the world needs to see what people are capable of because men are not the only ones that are involved with this crime and Patricia shows the whole world this!

Sold by Patricia McCormick
I just read "Sold by Patricia McCormick" this book was really good and very well written. My opinion on this book is that it was very informative, because no-one ever thinks about other things that are happening around the world. If I had never read this book I probably would have never thought about young girls being sold into sex trafficking and being forced to do things they don't want to do. This book really touched my heart and made me feel bad, but also grateful that I will never live that kind of life. This book as some disturbing details and when I read it was painful and bad images came into my head. I think everyone should read this book to help people think about what else is going on around the world. I really wished the book would have continued or there was a sequel. I was left wanting more out of this book, but that's just my opinion. Overall it was a pretty good book and I'm glad that I read it.

WOW
This book to me is a must read one. It is so good, in better words I'd like to say a simple but a very meaningful WOW.
I am from Nepal and I am turning thirteen on the first of May. This book pretty much changed my life for after reading it I started being being very concerned about women trafficking and LAXMI is a girl near my age. This made me much more close to her. Even though she is just a character in a book she was someone close to me for she was also a Nepali.
I got to know about this book from seeing a notice on my school's notice board. I was very amused to know that there was a movie being made out of it and I auditioned along with my companions. I was short-listed and now my fingers are crossed for the results are very near. I do wanna get the role and I hope I do.
I come from the country of the CNN hero, Ms. Anuradha Koirala and even if I don't get the role I will do something against women trafficking. Well, this is for sure..
