I am 14 years old when i read this book and I can honestly say it it is life changing. This book makes you really think about how life is at the moment some where else in this world and how fortunate you are to be able to walk around and not be told what you can and can't do. This really changed the way I think, and made me realize some people don't live so fortunate and free at all. You're an amazing author and I want to thank you for informing people about things like this. You are good.

Ummm
I love this book so0 much but it leaves you wanting more. After all she went through I wanna know how happy she is in this new place, if she ever sees her family and if her mom ever finds out what happen to her. Overall this book is very touching & sad. I feel her pain and her worry is as if it was all happening to me. Ever since I read this book I feel grateful about all I have; like she said we Americans live like kings and it is true we do. I don't worry about the cold about the the rain or the snow because my roof is good.

motivating
When I first saw this novel in the high school library I just grabbed it an started reading it. I was familiar with the the story and I found it really interesting and heart-touching because a thirteen year old innocent girl was being sold and I was moved by her life story. I want to make a film based on her life story. In future after completing my studies I will hopefully work on this film.

This novel is an excellent and brilliant masterpiece of the author and I would like to praise her for such a fabulous work she has done. Thnx for writing this novel.

This book is well written
This book was well written. McCormick explains the story well, and lets Lakshmi's torn spirit lead the reader into a world of hopeless despair.

Wow
Amazing. One word, an opinion, and yet it means so much. This book, written in free verse has opened a whole new side of me.
