"In Nobody's Girl, Barbara Amaya tells a gripping story about child sex trafficking and abuse, and of a life reclaimed -- her own. She shares her story with unflinching honesty, intelligence, verve and, yes, wit, challenging many common assumptions, misconceptions and myths that people have about the sexual exploitation of children in particular and the trafficking of human beings in general. Everyone who cares about children, social justice and human dignity should read this book and take action, like Barbara has done, to prevent what happened to her from happening to others." -Kay Chernush, Founder/Director, ArtWorks for Freedom
