A good book, but hard to read. It is about human trafficking, especially in children. Also about rug factories in 3rd world countries that use small children to make the rugs, mistreating them terribly, often chaining them by the ankles to their places. Undernourished, cold, often kidnapped, working most of the day (or night), paid little or unpaid. Sometimes the parents make their children work in these places to help support the family, knowing what goes on, or not wanting to know. And this is just one industry that uses children, some as young as three or four, there are many more. To say nothing of the sex trade in children. As I said, a hard book to read. It is necessary to know these things, though, and not turn our eyes and hearts away from these children, and not just blindly buy the products they are forced to make. A wake-up call sort of book, with characters you will care about. Sad, but a good read.
