    One thought on “They Called Me Red”

    1. Engaging, quick read, if too simplistic. Preteen narrator displays somewhat unrealistic maturity of a 20-something, and the book's lack of pretense is in this case a detriment, and it shies away from full engagement with the character's predicament. Still enjoyable though.

    2. 13 year-old Devon and his Dad live an idyllic life until his Dad becomes enamoured of Lily, a Vietnamese lady who works with Devon's Dad. Although Devon mistrusts her, his Dad becomes more and more entranced with her, until finally Lily moves in with them and Devon finds his life becoming more and more restricted. Gradually Devon's Dad becomes very ill, and Lily convinces him that the only hope for survival is being treated by her uncle, a traditional doctor in Vietnam. After his Dad dies, Lily [...]

    3. Kilbourne, Christina. 2008. They Called Me Red.It's been about a week since I read They Called Me Red, and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it. It had my attention--I'm not saying it didn't. But it was so unique, so different--in a way--that I'm not quite sure how to sum it up without giving too much away. (I don't know if that will make sense to others or not.) They Called Me Red is the novel of a father and son divided. First divided because of the father's attentions to a woman--a wic [...]

    4. Ok, so I personally didn't love it because I felt like it was too slow, however, this could be because I'm maybe a slow reader out loud so we only got through a chapter or two each reading time. I read this with the 7/8s and some of them said they preferred it over Dear Jo because there was "more dialogue" and "more happened". So, yes, I would say the kids liked it.

    5. a very touching book. but i dont like how he returns home. in most case's in real life they dont escape i know thats sad but its true. but if you liked this book you should read the boom called sold.

    6. Could not put it down after I started reading it when going to bed tonight. Now I can't sleep because of how thought-provoking this book was.

    7. This book is amazing. Now that I think about it is kinda like cinderella story a least the basic line of the plot

    8. Up until 3/4 of the way through the story was good, but the last quarter was slow for me and didn't strike me as a well done ending. But other than that it was good.

    9. While it started off a bit slow to get into, a lot happened in less than 200 pages. I liked that the protagonist was a male since many human trafficking narratives are about females. I think this is a good read for kids in grades 6-8 as a starting place for awareness of human trafficking because it's not super graphic.

    10. I loved this book as a teenager, and it sparked my interest in human trafficking. Absoutely amazing book!
