A wonderful story and very heart breaking. I have read this book many times and had to read it again. I read this once in Highschool and then used it in College as a book report for a assignment. It is one book that could and will be continued to be re-read. Pick it up and see what I am talking about.

rape, prostitution and suicide.....I have found a new respect for a culture I'm not part of...excellent read!!!!!!!!!

What a powerful story! Tragic and insightful. Quick read because I really couldn't put it down - wanted to find out what happens to the sisters.
