Mandy | 12 comments A few years ago, I read a book about a small girl living in a laundromat. it's written from the child's perspective. She lives in a laundromat until social services becomes involved, then she walks for miles through a desert and is found by a man, who puts her on display and people come to see her until, again, social services removes her.

What do you mean a man "puts her on display?" Why do people come to see her? Is she freakish looking?

Mandy | 12 comments a novel and for adults

Mandy | 12 comments because it's written in the child's perspective, I couldn't figure out exactly why she's put on display, seemed to be something religious. she was propped in a window and people would travel to see her.

The People Who Watched Her Pass By (2010) by Scott Bradfield seems to match your description.
