Breaking Free: True Stories of Girls Who Escaped Modern
Slavery, by award-winning author Abby Sher, explores the
global issue of human sex trafficking from a survivor's
point of view. It recounts the harrowing stories of three
courageous women--Somaly Mam, Minh Dang, and Maria
Suarez--who were all forced into sexual slavery as children.
After escaping their captors, these three women could easily
have become voiceless victims, lost to the horrors of their
own histories; instead, they have each become leading
advocates and activists in the anti-trafficking movement.
With help from Somaly, Maria, Minh, and many other survivors
and counselors, Sher tells the riveting story of what it
means to be liberated from sexual trafficking and find the
trust and conviction to help educate new survivors. Told
with breath-taking honesty and simplicity, Breaking Free:
True Stories of Girls Who Escaped Modern Slavery sends the
message that, even in the most tragic circumstances, the
unwavering hope and compassion of the human spirit can and
will shine through.
