Hidden Girl

The True Story of a Modern-Day Child Slave
  • By Lisa Wysocky
  • By Shyima Hall
$8.29
($11.99)

An inspiring and compelling memoir from a young woman who lost her childhood to slavery and built a new life grounded in determination and justice.


When Shyima Hall was eight years old, her impoverished parents sold her to pay a debt. Two years later, the wealthy family she was sold to moved to Orange County, California, and smuggled her with them. Shyima served the family eighteen hours a day, seven days a week until she was twelve. That's when an anonymous call from a neighbor brought about the end of Shyima's servitude but her journey to true freedom was far from over.


A volunteer at her local police department since she was a teenager, Shyima is passionate about helping to rescue others who are in bondage. Now a US citizen, she regularly speaks out about human trafficking and intends to one day become an immigration officer. In "Hidden Girl," Shyima commands unfailing interest, sympathy, and respect ("Publishers Weekly"), candidly reveals how she overcame her harrowing circumstances, and brings vital awareness to a timely and relevant topic.
