An interview with Patricia McCormick - the author of SOLD (Bechiyeki)

Although aimed at reaching a young adult audience, this beautifully written book with its simple direct prose has the power to capture readers of all ages.

SOLD has been for sale in the United States since 2006. It has been published in German, Hebrew, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Turkish, and Vietnamese.

Written in the first person, Lakshmi's sad tale describes trafficking in a personal and intimate style that, with its deeply disturbing facts, immediately involves the reader, making them want to help bring this terrible sexual exploitation to an end. The Didi Project aims to bring Sold/ Bechiyeki to the attention of increasing numbers of people so that families and whole villages will want to end child selling forever.
