In these pages we also meet some unexpected slaveholders, such as a 27-year old middle-class Texas housewife who is currently serving a life sentence for offences including slavery. Weaving together a wealth of voices—from slaves, slaveholders, and traffickers as well as from experts, counselors, law enforcement officers, rescue and support groups, and others—this book is also a call to action, telling what we, as private citizens, can do to finally bring an end to this horrific crime.

From the Author: This is a true story based on my life experience. It is not just another survivor’s story; it is the story of a journey to spiritual growth. After being abducted as a child and exploited through the underground world of human trafficking, I wanted to know why God loved all the children in the world but me. This is a testimony about a girl with hopes and dreams; who loved the Lord and loved life. Then one day her hopes and dreams were gone. She was lost and turned out. Dead to the world - will she ever recover? Is there a way out? This is the cold hard reality of human trafficking. It is not a book about statistical theory; it is the raw uncut survival story of a child of the night. It is the raw reality of my experiences overcoming the world of human trafficking. Some of the language is raw too. I changed most of it because I no longer speak that way; it was, however, the language of my world. Anyone who reads this book will benefit and be changed forever. There are 20 years of personal research in this book. What you know about this way of life is simply a myth. Layers and layers of a life style that has been misinterpreted for centuries will be unveiled. We will lay the myths to rest for this book is based on my life experience.

They are America's forgotten children, the hundreds of thousands of child prostitutes who walk the Las Vegas Strip, the casinos of Atlantic City, the truck stops on interstates, and the street corners of our cities. Many people wrongly believe sex trafficking involves young women from foreign lands. In reality, the majority of teens caught in the sex trade are American girls--runaways and throwaways who become victims of ruthless pimps. In "Somebody's Daughter: The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children and the Battle to Save Them," meet the girls who are fighting for their dignity, the cops who are trying to rescue them, and the community activists battling to protect the nation's most forsaken children. Author Julian Sher takes you behind the scenes to expose one of America's most underreported crimes: A girl from New Jersey gets arrested in Las Vegas and, at great risk to her own life, helps the FBI take down a million-dollar pimping empire. An abused teenager in Texas has the courage to take the stand in a grueling trial that sends her pimp away for 75 years. Survivors of the sex trade in New York, Phoenix, and Minneapolis set up shelters and rescue centers that offer young girls a chance to break free from the streets. "The sex trade is the new drug trade," says one FBI special agent, and "Somebody's Daughter" is a call to action, shining a light on America's dirty little secret.

Fifteen years after its hardcover debut, the FSG Classics reissue of the celebrated work of narrative nonfiction that won the National Book Award and changed the American conversation about race, with a new preface by the author The Ball family hails from South Carolina—Charleston and thereabouts. Their plantations were among the oldest and longest-standing plantations in the South. Between 1698 and 1865, close to four thousand black people were born into slavery under the Balls or were bought by them. In Slaves in the Family, Edward Ball recounts his efforts to track down and meet the descendants of his family's slaves. Part historical narrative, part oral history, part personal story of investigation and catharsis, Slaves in the Family is, in the words of Pat Conroy, "a work of breathtaking generosity and courage, a magnificent study of the complexity and strangeness and beauty of the word ‘family.'"
