A heart warming story about a young girl's journey through a life of adversity. An easy and quick read.

I picked this book randomly for a multi-cultural literature class. I'm so glad I did! This book held my focus and took me on the journey of heartache and success. A truly wonderful book!

I had to read this book for a class and i started it before I even started the class. It was great, I couldn't put it down. I didn't think I was going to like it, but i ended up loving it.

I loved this book. It's a great story. Read this book and you'll definately walk away with a greater respect for Lalu and others like her.

Astonishing but gripping. The thought of being sold to bandits for 2 bags of soybeans still flows through my mind. Scared me so much that I was scared of the book when I was done reading. Now it makes me realizes how Lalu aka Polly survives in the demon world. And shows us the hardships of Asian Americans. Telling us we need to lead a better life rather than getting sold and to not end up in a brothel. Still thinking of wha life was really like for Lalu still leaves me breath taking...
