Rubina Ali, the 9 year old actress from the Academy Award winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire” is going to release a memoir. Rubina has been a hot topic in the media because her father is basincally trying to pimp her out due to her sudden  “Slumdog” popularity.

“Rubina brings alive a world of wastelands and rat-infested shanty dwellings, and shows us her home, a wooden shack with a tarpaulin roof, where she grew up with her beloved father and siblings,” said a statement given by her publisher.

Why can’t Danny Boyle intervene with a magic check or a Daddy Warbucks adoption clause? These kids gave “Slumdog Millionaire ” the heart it needed to affect the mainstream. The studios get the Oscars and the kids get  the ass end of  the deal.  Weak.
