This was a very powerful book for me! I read it in one sitting. Granted, I know, it is written for a teenage audience, but that didn't change how much force was behind it. I loved the way it was written in short vignettes, it packs a powerful message. It's hard to believe that this kind of thing is happening, right now, every day in India. It makes me so sad, but also very angry. One thing I wonder about though, is that there must be other countries doing the same type of work as these American's are. Raiding these brothels. It's not JUST America who is helping to change these problems, though the book makes out Americans as the ones who are going to save everyone. Otherwise this was a spectacular book.

Urgh -- I had high hopes for this book. I started to get a little bored halfway though but presisted because I felt like I needed to know what was going to happen. And the answer was nothing!! Urgh.. what a terrible ending. It made me mad that I even bothered finishing it. What a waste of time in my opinion
