Leyla is about a Turkish girl growing up during the Ottoman Empire. Her family falls upon hard times after her father disappears during the war. Leyla, thinking she is selling herself to be married, unwittingly sells herself into slavery in order to bring her family money.
She finds herself as part of a harem where her love of gardening and painting become both her only solace and her salvation. This is a melancholy read, yet filled with hope. A great way for girls to explore how other girls have lived in the past.
Grades 3 - 6. Leyla's first-person voice evokes the physical beauty of life in "the Golden Cage" with engaging detail, but like Leyla, readers will find themselves confused by the more "adult" aspects of harem life such as the eunuchs that are left unexplained.
