Description

An inspiring and compelling memoir from a young woman who lost her childhood to slavery--and built a new life grounded in determination and justice. When Shyima Hall was eight years old, her impoverished parents sold her to pay a debt. Two years later, the wealthy family she was sold to moved to Orange County, California, and smuggled her with them. Shyima served the family eighteen hours a day, seven days a week until she was twelve. That's when an anonymous call from a neighbor brought about the end of Shyima's servitude--but her journey to true freedom was far from over. A volunteer at her local police department since she was a teenager, Shyima is passionate about helping to rescue others who are in bondage. Now a US citizen, she regularly speaks out about human trafficking and intends to one day become an immigration officer. In Hidden Girl , Shyima "commands unfailing interest, sympathy, and respect" ( Publishers Weekly ), candidly reveals how she overcame her harrowing circumstances, and brings vital awareness to a timely and relevant topic.
