Not rated. I'm can imagine the portrayal of how street kids live is accurate, they learn survival tactics. Trafficking bodies continues today. This ended up being one very fortunate child.

This story is so amazing and inspiring....couldn't put it down. I hope the author will write a sequel.

This is a good book, such an interesting story. I only heard about it after an interview on CBC.

One of the better books I've read in a long time. I don't often pick up biographies but this was well worth it. The main character is memorable and inspiring, clean and straight forward, def recommend this to anyone from 12 up.

Very descriptive and an incredible true story! I loved how she, through imitation, learned how to feed herself, make herself a soft bed with moss and how Granpa Capuchin saved her from death. How she learned to make paint and jewelry and decorate her tree trunk. How she survived is a miracle!

Absolutely captures your attention as you follow an incredible and often harrowing journey of a young girl with insights into the reality of survival, street life and issues of rural and big city South America which.are as mind boggling as they are real. I could not put it down.

This story is unbelievable but credibly written. The ghost writer used the thorough research of the credited author's daughter. It is an easy read but well written where you can visualize the events being described. It does make you feel a range of emotions including a certain hate for our species who treat their fellow human being with such distain. This is a story you'll definitely read in a day or two as you don't want to put the book down.

Agree w ef434 - incredible yet one believes. A great read but not without lots of sad parts. Between "us" and the monkeys, whose side would you want to be on ? very thought provoking.

After seeing an interview with Marina and her daughter I just had to read this book. Once I started I couldn't put it down; I read it all in one day. Loved it.

Great read. Can't wait for the sequel.
It is easy to discredit the early childhood of this somewhat attractive and lovable character as fiction, but the reader is left wanting to believe every detail!
