Read The Road of Lost Innocence


With a forward from New York Times columnist and reporter Nicholas Kristof, The Road of Lost Innocence recounts the experiences of former child sex slave and anti-trafficking activist Somaly Mam, from her early life, when she was sold into sexual slavery at age 12, to her eventual escape and awakening as an activist. She has orchestrated raids on brothels and rescued sex workers, some as young as five and six; she has built shelters, started schools, and founded an organization that has so far saved more than four thousand women and children in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. Her memoir will leave you awestruck by her tenacity and courage and will renew your faith in the power of an individual to bring about change.
