Sold  by Patricia McCormick

Sold by Patricia McCormick is the story of a 13 year girl named Lakshmi who lives in Nepal and is sold into child prostitution. This is an incredibly sad book and it is told in beautiful prose. It is an important story that needs to be discussed and this book does a great job of doing that. It also shows it from a child’s perspective and shows why it happens. It shows the issues that cause it and also how people go along with it. I think that this is a good middle grade book for a hard topic. I would recommend reading it in a group because there is a lot to discuss, but it is also a good read when read alone.
