Book Summary: My name is Elena and I used to be a human being. Now I am a sex slave.

****

Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave is a gritty, gripping, and tear-jerking novella, inspired by real victims’ accounts and research into the sex trafficking underworld.

It is estimated that 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year – 80% of these are women and girls. (Source: U.S. Department of State, Trafficking in Persons Report: 2007)

This is a heart wrenching story of a young girl named Elena who is kidnapped by sex slavers. It is brutal and horrifying. Elena tells her story through a diary she hides from her captors. Her hopelessness, fear and agony are very real. Although the story is very short, it packs a punch. As stated in the book summary, sex trafficking is a very real crime, a hideous business that profits from the destruction of young men and women all over the world. Sibel Hodge has done a very good job giving us facts in a story setting without sensationalism.

Like many of the injustices committed all over the world, the practice of sex trafficking is usually hidden in the underworld of crime but needs more light shed on it before it can be stopped.
