Two women kidnapped by infamous Cleveland school-bus driver
Ariel Castro share the stories of their abductions,
captivity, and dramatic escape
On May 6, 2013, Amanda Berry made headlines around the world
when she fled a Cleveland home and called 911, saying: “Help
me, I’m Amanda Berry. . . . I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve
been missing for ten years.”
A horrifying story rapidly unfolded. Ariel Castro, a local
school bus driver, had separately lured Berry, Gina DeJesus,
and Michelle Knight to his home, where he kept them chained.
In the decade that followed, the three were raped,
psychologically abused, and threatened with death.
Berry had a daughter—Jocelyn—by their captor.
Drawing upon their recollections and the diary kept by
Amanda Berry, Berry and Gina DeJesus describe a tale of
unimaginable torment, and Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington
Post reporters Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan interweave the
events within Castro’s house with original reporting on
efforts to find the missing girls.
The full story behind the headlines—including details never
previously released on Castro’s life and motivations—Hope is
a harrowing yet inspiring chronicle of two women whose
courage, ingenuity, and resourcefulness ultimately delivered
them back to their lives and families.
