I recently read this book titled ‘Sold’ by Patricia McCormick and I loved it.
The story is about life in a village in Central Nepal in the teeming brothels of Calcutta, India, where a girl, Lakshmi, gets sold to a sex trade.
Lakshmi lived in Calcutta’s red-light district. She lived with her mum Ama, her little brother, and her stepfather. She had a friend, Gita, who went to the city to work as a maid.
In the red-light district festival Lakshmi met a city woman named Bimla who told Lakshmi she wanted her as a maid. Bimla sold Lakshmi to a turnip-nose man. The man sold her to a fat woman named Mumtaz where Lakshmi was forced to work in a sex trade place with other girls.
One day, an American came and told Lakshmi he will get her out. He brought the police and set the girls free from the sex trade in India.
The girls and Lakshmi were free.
