This is a really well-written, well-organized, and comprehensive look at the modern day slave trade. It was incredibly hard to read at times, but I'm so glad I did, because I feel INFORMED now in a way that very few books have made me. Seeing the reality is harsh, but Not for Sale showed me that reality in a way that really pushed the harshness of it without ever feeling manipulative. ( )

Everybody should read this book. If you think slavery was stamped out in the 1800's you would be very much mistaken. 27 million people are currently enslaved in the world, half of them are under the age of 18. This book is a call out for the modern abolitionists to save them. The book is set up in chapters covering sexual slaves in Cambodia and Thailand, the child soldiers of Uganda, sexual exploitation in Europe, the lost children of Peru, and even slavery in our own backyards in the US. Parts of this book were very difficult to read but necessary to understand the problem. The stories were so heartbreaking and they made me angry but just when you feel ready to give up on humanity there is hope in the form of someone who makes it their life mission to save these souls from destruction. Often they do so at great peril and personal cost. Since reading this book I have learned that I live in the state with the third highest amount of slaves in the US. The recent Superbowl is the number one sex trafficked event in the US. Thankfully more and more people are becoming aware of the hidden slaves in our midst. I saw on the news that the police who were working the Superbowl were warning potential sex traffickers that they were more likely to come in contact with a pair of handcuffs than a victim. This is exactly the vigilant attitude that everyone needs to have. A woman from my own state took her fifteen year old daughter up to the Superbowl in order to pimp her out but fortunately the girl end up meeting with a police officer instead of an abuser. We don't have to look far to find the victims who need our help. The author ends the book with some excellent advice that can aid anyone who wants to join in the fight to end slavery. As the author points out we are at a critical juncture for human rights and everyone is needed to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

You are not for sale.
No one should be for sale." ( )

If you thought that slavery was a non-existent or even a minor issue in the world today, then you have to read this book. This is a great introduction to the modern slave trade that has human beings as the second largest commodity on the illegal trade markets. It reaches all corners of the world and no one is immune to it. ( )

Book on current day slave practices. Chapters with info on who you can contact to help. ( )

An eye-opening book whose stories alternately pummel you reasons to despair and hope. Didn't fully appreciate how wide-spread human trafficking is. If you don't think it was a big problem; you're wrong. If you think it's a big problem; it's even worse than you thought. This is a great book to help spread the word. ( )
