This is a very interesting book about a boy named Gopal whose family comes from a rural Indian village. They moved the Mumbai, a big city where Gopal ended up being kidnapped and sold into child labour to make beaded frames. In the book it describes his time there, bring beaten, attempting to gain the trust of the owner and leader, and also making friends with the others boys. The ending made me very happy to know that everything turned out alright. It is a very good read in my opinion.
