Reviews
"Put(s) a human and multi-dimensional face on the child labor problem...could easily be used to encourage discussions about young people in other cultures, and about problems young people face at home and abroad."

Booklist

"Asks all the right questions, placing fundamental human (and adolescent) concerns in an edifying-and sometimes troubling-global context."
