Review: When Shyima Hall was eight years old, her impoverished parents sold her to pay a debt. Two years later, the wealthy family who bought her 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. Hidden Girl is an inspiring and compelling memoir of a young women who lost her childhood to slavery - and built a new life grounded in determination and justice.
