The Road of Lost Innocence: The True Story of a Cambodian Heroine, by Somaly Mam


Somaly Mam is an incredible activist who continues to endure threats to her family and herself in order to operate a sort of Underground Railroad for modern-day slaves. She is not a writer, so most of the potential for this book is lost in matter-of-fact statements when descriptive narration could have served better. It's an amazing story, but the entire book is not a must-read because certain excerpts can get the same point across. Still, I'd encourage everyone to read a few articles about Mam and consider donating to her foundation.
