Joe’s #1: Sold by Patricia McCormick

Twelve thousand Nepali girls are sold every year into the sex slave trade. Sometimes by families that think they are sending them to work as a maid for a wealthy family in the city.

This fictional book about Lakshmi is meticulously researched and extremely well written. Short, poignant vignettes capture the reader and draw you into a world that is both disturbing and haunting. The thought that kept me up at night was the fact that this story was real for thousands of girls.

I hated reading it and I think that everyone should read it.Read it in light of Proverbs 24:11-12

  1. Hi Joe,
    Great to see your first post. Looks like a compelling read. Did I tell you that we launched a non profit, Stop Slavery, this last year to combat modern day slavery?
