Sold, by Paticia McCormick is a book about a girl named Lakshimi that is thirteen, she lives with her poor family in a village in Nepal. One day all her family’s crops were washed away, which forced her to get a job to support her family. Her stepdad introduced her to a guy that brings her all the way to India. What Lakshimi didn’t know was, her family sold her into prostitution. She is forced to stay there until her family’s debt is payed off. This book is very sad and it really makes you think about all the other people out in the world and what they have to go through everyday. This book makes you very thankful for what you have.
