The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a story of a 9 year old Indian girl who was sold into prostitution by her parents. What the girl, Batuk, had to go through was terrible and made me very sad for her. Batuk has a terrible life, but she has a blue notebook where she writes stories. It really opens my mind up and made me more aware of what some children have to go through in their everyday lives just to get through day to day. It was a good book, but really makes me wonder how many children actually have to live their lives this way and makes me thankful for my upbringing. I thought I had rough days, but it's nothing compared to what Batuk had to endure.
