it was ok

I listened to this book after I found out our school district is looking to adopt it as part of the 10-12th grade curriculum. I have not quite finished it, but I am not sure I will as I have to listen to it on the computer when the kids are in bed. It is a sad story narrating the life of one orphaned boy in India who is used, abused, tortured, and experiences or watches every atrocity imaginable. It does bring to light the realities of poverty in India, but in an explicitly graphic way that I cannot recommend to others nor support as a book for 15 year olds to study.
