The True Story of A Modern-day Child SlaveBook - 2014
Shyima Hall was eight when her parents sold her into slavery. In Cairo, Egypt, she lived with a wealthy family and served them eighteen hours a day, seven days a week. When she was ten, her captors moved to Orange County, California, and smuggled Shyima with them. Two years later, an anonymous call from a neighbor brought about the end of Shyima's servitude, but her journey to true freedom was far from over. Now a U.S. citizen, she regularly speaks out about human trafficking and candidly reveals how she overcame her harrowing circumstances.
