This book is a very symbolic book about freedom, hope, and child labor. This books is about Iqbal, and Fatima, two children who are indentured slaves in Pakistan. Fatima narrates the book, while Iqbal is the main character. Iqbal is sold from merchant to merchant because he is rebellious. One of the many times he runs away he runs across an activist that is against child labor. He trusts in the wrong people and he confides to the corrupt police force that he is a runaway. They take him back to his master where he is severely punished. Iqbal stands up to his master and everyone is freed. Not every ending is a happy one, though. You must read this book to find out what happens. This book is slightly fictionalized. Iqbal was a real child that existed and helped many people to safety.
