Reviewed in India on 17 October 2021
My daughter and I were big fans of The Bridge Home and have been eagerly awaiting the release of Born Behind Bars. We both loved this book just as much. The characters have so much heart, charm, and depth. Venkatraman so effectively conjures the wonder of Kabir discovering the beauty and sometimes ugliness of life in the outside world. It is a joy to join him on his incredibly touching journey. Padma visited our school virtually last year which was such a treat. Her own life story is quite amazing as well. Our school librarian reminded me that a character from The Bridge Home makes an appearance in Born Behind Bars which blew our minds once we made the connection. Reading this book to my daughter was a joyous and tearful experience. My favorite books are the ones that make me laugh and cry and this one did both.

Moved to TearsReviewed in the United States on 22 September 2021
This exquisite book moved me to tears. Great literature is great at any age. While this may be labeled a book for middle schoolers, I challenge any adult to read this and not be profoundly moved by it! In other words, this is a powerful read. Yet it's written with such sensitivity to what a young reader might be ready for. All of Padma's books have that no-matter-your-age quality -- literature at its finest.

Heartwarming and relevantReviewed in the United States on 27 September 2021
Ms. Venkatraman has written a beautiful and relevant novel about the lives of brave young children struggling to find their way home. It was a page turner, and I found it moving and realistic, as it depicts the injustices of the criminal system, the longing for freedom and the determination in reaching that goal. The characters are portrayed with love and sensitivity, as they come to life, and I felt I was in their world and could see the world through their eyes. It is a wonderful read, for all ages!
