    This was a hard book to read, but in terms of writing quality, storyline and emotional impact it is one of the best young adult novels that I’ve read.

    This powerful novel focuses on trafficking in sexual slavery. Some passages are explicit in portraying the pain and abuse that Lakshmi suffers as she is forced into prostitution. College students in my class, A Global View through Children’s Literature, wrote that Sold changed their thinking and made them want to take action against such trafficking.
