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.
