This story was fascinating and heartbreaking story of a young women that is sold into the sex trade. It was not an easy read but one that I think people should read in order to understand what happens outside (and often within) our borders. This novel is not overly graphic, but it is disturbing enough that I would hesitate to read it in class. However, I very much think that libraries should have this novel and recommend students to read it. "Sold" is the type of novel that stays with you long after you read it, a thing that very few novels are able to do. ( )

This is a great book. The writing style makes it a really fast moving book. Each chapter is very short. The story itself is intriguing (although a bit depressing). ( )

Even though this is a fictionalized account, it is very disheartening to know that a story like this can happen today. While it is a short listen, it is a very heavy story, and very well-done. ( )

Story of a 13 year old in India sold into sexual slavery. I read because it was listed as a highschool recommended book - yet was on a list to be banned by a local school. I would recommend to an adult book club but felt the same story could be told for hs without quite the graphics. ( )

A heart breaking story, I thought it was going to be a non-fiction book with facts and stats. Instead it is this incredible story of a 13 year old girl. More people should read this book. I know I am late to the book but so good and so sad. ( )
