An excellent read. Karana, the heroine, is so strong, smart and resiliant. A compassionate and wonderful role model for girls (and boys) of all ages, despite her unique and tragic circumstances. In the Author's Note, I learned this book is based on a true story! That made this book even more extraordinary for me. Highly recommended reading for all.
