  • "Sold" By Patricia McCormick
  • While trying to figure out what to do to get away, Lakshmi met a white man that was American and came to specifically help her.
  • Lakshmi is a young girl whose family is very poor and lives in a small home. She lives with her mother, father, brother, and their goat.
  • "A tiny roof means that the family has a father who doesn't gamble away..."
  • Lakshmi's family was in need of money so her father decided to sell her away so that she can work for money.
  • "I can work for a rich family...and send my wages home to you."
  • Lakshmi is saved in the end, and the police come to take her from the danger she was in before.
  • The longer Lakshmi was away, the quicker she was able to figure out that she was not safe, and needed to get away!
  • "I am here to help you get out of here"
  • "something inside of me breaks open"
