The Road of Lost Innocence: The True Story of a Cambodian Heroine, by Somaly Mam
A truly powerful and moving memoir. This window into the Cambodian sex trade is both harrowing and inspiring; I found myself being simultaneously horrified at the predicament of the girls in the brothels, and motivated to learn more and help in Somaly's cause. If you're interested in the plight of women in the modern world or in human rights in general, I highly recommend this book.
