What a thoughtful and engaging book; it was sad yet uplifting at the same time I didn't notice that it was slotted as a middle gradechildren's book until I was finished it but honestly this is a wonderful book for any ageThe story revolves around four pre teen children trying to survive in the city of Chennai in India They are victims of abuse neglect and tragedy Although their stories and how they came to this point are very different there is a connection forming a familial bond They are forced to make many mature decisions about food money and sickness The fact is there really are poor and homeless children who scour trash piles and garbage bins to find anything worth salvaging in exchange for money simply in order to survive Viji Rukku Muthi and Arul are actually complimented in a rather twisted but something to think about way that they are helping the environment by sorting through the trash to find recyclable items glass plastic leather fabric etc And in that sense helping to cut down on trash and keep the city somewhat cleaner then it would be without their help Naturally the logical solution would be to engage better garbage disposal programs but this is the big city reality that exists in India and other locations around the world right now You can read about these children here Meet the kids scavenging on rubbish dumps to surviveThis is a rare case of the author narrating her own book and it worked Her narration was authentic and passionate and her writing was superb
