Capturing Jasmina, fiction for young adult readers by Kimberly Rae, is the story of Jasmina, a young girl in India, and her brother, Samir. The children are sold by their father to a man promising them an education and good jobs.
But, as Jasmina and Samir soon discover, the man is providing an education, not in a school, but as a slave in his sweatshop garment factory. While Samir quickly submits to his new life of misery, Jasmina never stops planning an escape.
She comes to realize that escape doesn't always mean freedom.
An Eye-Opener for Me
Capturing Jasmina was an eye-opener for me.
Knowing how girls sense being loved less in some cultures is what drew me to this story, and thinking of how many children, girls AND boys, are simply chattel and a way to a better life for some adults, even their own parents, needs to be made known. Only the love of Christ can help in in this delicately unfolded story that is so honest and important. This book is a gentle treasure and also an appropriate warning to young people that control of their lives can be lost in a quick moment, no matter where they live. I'm so glad a seed of faith is planted in it that can lead them to seek the Lord while He may be found. I read this late at night and did not want to sleep until i finished it. It was exciting and had a strong leading thread that drew me along, yet no boundaries were inappropriately crossed in presenting it. I ordered a few copies for friends for their kids, but I think adults will get a blessing from reading it as well. I can't wait for Book 2.
