"Review" by , "[A] clear, compelling, first-person narrative that conveys [Nazer's] young voice with powerful authenticity....The details are unforgettable, capturing both the innocence of the child and the world-weariness of one who has endured the worst."
"Review" by , "[A] straightforward, harrowing memoir that's a sobering reminder that slavery still needs to be stamped out....[Nazer's] book is a profound meditation on the human ability to survive virtually any circumstances."
"Review" by , "[A] shockingly grim story...mercifully, it has an ending to lift the spirit....Revelatory in the truest sense of the word: told with a child-pure candor that comes like a bucket of cold water in the lap."
"Review" by , "Nazer tells her story of individual dignity combined with uncommon courage."
"Review" by , "If the experiences Nazer recounts here prove true, they will stand as an important reminder of the real, lived terrors of thousands of black southern Sudanese whose stories will never be told, and whose freedom may never be won."
"Review" by , "Few [memoirs] are as starkly powerful as this one: Nazer tells her story with lucid simplicity..."
"Review" by , "Slave constitutes an act of tremendous courage. A solitary and profoundly moving voice emerging from the most silenced of quarters."
"Synopsis" by , Nazer was about 12 when raiders burned her Nuba village, killed the adults, and took 31 young children, who were sold in Sudan's capital Khartoum. She tells of her years in slavery, her flight after seven years, and her attainment of asylum in Britain. British journalist Lewis helped her escape and write her story.
"Synopsis" by , A shocking true story of contemporary slavery: Mende Nazer, snatched from her tribal village in Africa as a young girl, survives slavery in Sudan and London before making a courageous escape to freedom.
