At age twelve, Mende Nazer lost her childhood. It began one horrific night in 1993, when Arab raiders swept through her Nuba village, setting fire to the village huts and murdering the adults. They rounded up thirty-one young children, including Mende, who was eventually sold to a wealthy Arab family in Sudan's capital city, Khartoum. So began Mende's seven dark years of enslavement. Normally, Mende's story never would have come to light, but when she was sent to work for another master-a diplomat working in London-she made a dramatic break for freedom.

Wonderful account of a childhood cut short and the traumatic years that followed.

I couldn't put this book down! I read the whole in 2 days. Mende Nazer suffered so much but she is so strong and so brave. I hope she can see her family one day.

Wonderfully told.

I read this book so quickly and could hardly wait to finish it.

The stories she shares are heavy and personal.

I even had to follow up. I just had to know where she is now and is she able to help others. This book made me ask what I can do.

It is a scary truth about slavery today.

A really good read.
