Slave: My True Story

Front Cover
"Thousands of other child-slaves have suffered a similar fate. Normally, Mende's story never would have come to light. But seven years after she was seized and sold into slavery, she was sent to work for another master - a diplomat in London. In a desperate attempt to flee, she managed to make contact with other Sudanese, who took pity on her. In September 2000, she made a dramatic break for freedom."--BOOK JACKET.
