Sold by Patricia McCormick

Sold is about a young girl who is sent off to work as a maid in the city to send her wages to her family. Lakshmi is deceived and is taken to a brothel instead. This poor girl is forced to be with men and caught in debt to the fat women who runs the place. She has to decide whether she wants to stay or risk her life to leave.

I liked this book, but I definitely did not love it. It was a very quick read and just too easy. I would think that it would be more of a middle school level book, but the content is a little rough. Honestly, I don’t think the kind of tragedy that this type of situation comes with could not be portrayed in a small, easy-to-read book.
