    Story
    (42)

    Born in a village deep in the Cambodian forest, Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather when she was 12 years old. For the next decade, she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade industry of Southeast Asia. Trapped in this dangerous and desperate world, she suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking - rape, torture, deprivation - until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker.

    "tough to listen to but important to hear"
    Overall

    This book is very important. It is brutally honest and tough to hear. Every person should read this though because without this knowledge we are oblivious to these horrible situations. The more people who know, the less tolerant the world will become and the better it will be for all.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Story

    This book leaves me feeling skeptical yet hopeful. I saw the kiddo interviewed on the Today show and wasn't impressed. He hardly said 2 words and those were less than inspired. His parents did most of the talking. But... my curiosity won out. With his dad's occupation being a preacher, one cannot help but wonder how much really came from this 4 year old, although these concerns are directly addressed in the book. The way they describe his gradual telling of his experience seems quite believable and truly innocent. The idea that there is something beyond this existence is something everyone wants to hear if they are honest. It's a story of love of the greatest kind. Why not let this book give a little hope and peace to readers. Overall, I found it quite uplifting and fun.
