Description:

In order to save her family's farm, Roshen, sixteen, must leave her rural home to work in a factory in the south of China. There she finds arduous and degrading conditions and contempt for her minority (Uyghur) background. Sustained by her bond with other Uyghur girls, Roshen is resolved to endure all to help her family and ultimately her people. A workplace survival story, this gritty, poignant account focuses on a courageous teen and illuminates the value-and cost-of freedom.

Quotes:

Readers will admire Roshen's resilience in the face of stark exploitation., Publishers Weekly

A thought-provoking look at oppression and the power of words from a viewpoint not often heard., Kirkus

...the stories of girls driven by desperation and lured by deceit are equally compelling. La Valley is at her best when focusing on the strenuous work, curtailed freedom, and group interrelationships., Bulletin

Gilbert's wonderfully effective narration lets listeners experience Roshen's heartbreak and feel vindicated at the eye-opening story's eventual, hopeful end., Booklist

Gilbert's compassionate portrayal highlights Roshen's transition from a scared farm girl to a brave and empathetic leader. This workplace story, based on the actual experiences of Uyghur people in China, is a haunting account of strength and survival., AudioFile Magazine
