Amazing!

What can I say about Boys Without Names? It is such an amazing book, that I'm not sure describing it, or just using words like 'moving,' 'poignant,' and 'beautifully painful' really do it justice. It's a simple yet profound story that everyone in America should read, no...
What can I say about Boys Without Names? It is such an amazing book, that I'm not sure describing it, or just using words like 'moving,' 'poignant,' and 'beautifully painful' really do it justice. It's a simple yet profound story that everyone in America should read, not just teens. It's important that we as a culture understand that many of the nice things that we want at a cheap price often come at an incredibly high price for someone else. Including becoming a slave.

Read it! Expand your worldview. Change your perspective on what it truly, tangibly means to have your clothes made in sweatshops in poorer countries around the world. Our rampant materialism is an oppressor to people in other nations, and we should have to account for it.

Other than the message Sheth so profoundly communicates, the world she creates is beautiful. I can feel the heat, smell all the amazing smells, and learn a great deal about Indian culture. I feel as if I am also one of those boys without names, working in the sweatshop, and through their experience of creating family and bonds, and reminded fondly of my own childhood. All the more reason that I want to step into the story and save these children from injustice, and punish those who are responsible for it.

It was everything I was hoping for and more, and I recommend that everyone read it.
