"Saeed's timely and stirring middle-grade debut is a celebration of resistance and justice."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review The compelling story of a girl's fight to regain her life and dreams after being forced into indentured servitude. Life is quiet and ordinary in Amal's Pakistani village, but she had no complaints, and besides, she's busy pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher one day. Her dreams are temporarily dashed when--as the eldest daughter--she must stay home from school to take care of her siblings. Amal is upset, but she doesn't lose hope and finds ways to continue learning. Then the unimaginable happens--after an accidental run-in with the son of her village's corrupt landlord, Amal must work as his family's servant to pay off her own family's debt. Life at the opulent Khan estate is full of heartbreak and struggle for Amal--especially when she inadvertently makes an enemy of a girl named Nabila. Most troubling, though, is Amal's growing awareness of the Khans' nefarious dealings. When it becomes clear just how far they will go to protect their interests, Amal realizes she will have to find a way to work with others if they are ever to exact change in a cruel status quo, and if Amal is ever to achieve her dreams.… (més)

Is this about a topic that is unknown to many people, yes. Is it helping us to grow and understand different lives than ours, yes. Is it appropriate for its intended audience, yes. Did it show love and bravery, yes. Did I love it, no. I think I just wanted more, more character development, more depth, something. I liked the complicated relationship between Amal and Nasreen Baji and felt that could have been explored more. I do recommend this book though for young people, as a good way to experience a completely different life than they may know; 4th grade on up. I also hope Aisah Saeed keeps writing. ( )

Powerful book on the subject of indentured servitude, and the children and families that fall victim to it. Also strongly about literacy, education, agency, and the power of standing up for what you believe in even when the possible outcomes are terrifying. Strong brew for young readers, but inspiring and a reasonably accessible read. There is a murder and physical abuse (hitting), but no sexual content. ( )
