Grk Smells a Rat by Joshua Doder

Doder, Joshua Grk Smells a Rat, 202 pgs. Delacorte Press, 2008. Language - G, Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; 

Tim and his family are in India for a tennis competition. When Tim, Grk, Natascha, and Mr. and Mrs. Malt go to see Taj Mahal, Natascha buys Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows from a boy on the train, named Krishnan. She soon finds out that it's not a real copy. When Tim and Grk follow Krishnan to get her money back they find a secret hideout across the train tracks. There they find Krishnan with 18 other boys. Tim and Grk find out that these kids are enslaved in the Blue Rat Gang and that Krishnan needs help rescuing his sister from forced labor. I thought this was an alright book, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone in 8th grade or above.
