My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A well written and very disturbing look at human trafficking, this is the story of Lakshmi, a young girl from the hills of Nepal who thinks she is going to the city to be a maid so she can send money back to her family. Unfortunately, Lakshmi is unwittingly drawn into the ugly world of sex trafficking in India, and her heartbreaking story of abuse is written in a poignant first person account. This young adult book handles the sex scenes discreetly, but the emotional pain is raw and difficult at times. I would recommend this book highly to older teens and adults.
