This is a powerful, haunting story that sadly is the reality of too many women across this globe. I love how the author writes from the perspective of a thirteen year-old Nepalese girl, Lakshmi, in a free verse, poetic style. Patricia McCormack choice of style and vivid language made it a fast, easy and a more interesting read in my opinion. This is an important, compelling story yet I was surprised that this book is targeted towards adolescences. I felt it might be a little too disturbing.
