    " I was lucky that this book was very short. This is a young adult novel about the life of Iqbal Mashif and his fight to free the child bonded labourers of Pakistan. Most of the book was boring but about 10% of it was actually interesting. i recommend this book to girls that want to read a sad story or boys that want to waste time in advisory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 7/18/2010

    " A quick and worthwhile read. While clearly intended for younger audiences (late elementary to early middle school), it almost seems to make light of childhood slavery. Nonetheless, an interesting novelization about the state of childhood slavery in Pakistan. "
