Recommended by Jen @ YA Romantics:

  • Wither and Fever by Lauren DeStefano: Women are rounded up and forced into sexual slavery.

Recommended by Stephanie @ The Fedorable Librarian:

  • Stolen by Lucy Christopher: Guy kidnaps girl from airport and takes her to his home in middle of nowhere Australia. Very creepy.

Recommended by Jennifer @ YA Book Nerd:

  • Sold by Patricia McCormick: A novel in verse about a girl sold into prostitution at the tender age of 13 due to a monsoon.

Recommended by Kari @ A Good Addiction:

  • Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska: Polish immigrants to New York in the early 1900s… it’s definitely a very interesting story, and worth the read.
  • The Chaos Walking Series by Patrick Ness: There is a big slavery component in this series, portrayed stunningly.
  • Eve by Anna Carey: In a world wiped out by a plague, girls are forced into multiple pregnancies in an effort to repopulate. Yeah.
  • Chained by Lynne Kelly: Its a different kind of slavery, but a ten year old boy starts working for a cruel circus director to pay back a debt on his mother’s behalf after his sister falls ill.


Recommended by Capillya @ That Cover Girl:

  • Taken: I have to admit I hadn’t seen a lot of Liam Neeson before this film, all I knew was that he was tall and I liked his Irish accent. (Please don’t judge me for not having seen Schindler’s List!) But when my dad told me that I needed to watch the film, and left it at that, I did.  Which promptly placed Liam Neeson at the #1 position of My Most Favorite Badasses in the History of Cinema. What this film perfectly captures is the lengths that any person will go to protect his or her family. I normally don’t cheer for the death and beating up of other people, but I was absolutely cheering in this film because Liam Neeson is like “Oh hey Bad Guy, you’re in the way of me getting to rescue my daughter?! It’s killin’ time!” and I was like “LIAM I LOVE YOU.” Secrets! Lies! Payback! Redemption! The horrors of human trafficking! The fact that this movie made me want to punch everyone in the face! And there’s going to be a Taken 2 later this year and I’ve got my fingers crossed that it doesn’t suck as bad as Unknown did. (Battleship, there’s a little more hope for you, but mostly because Taylor Kitsch is in it.)

  • Taken: Liam Neeson doesn’t let anyone get in his way as he rescues his daughter.

  • Glad to see Sold mentioned. That was the only one that came to mind when I was thinking about this. I do have some of the others on my TBR.

  • Don’t feel too bad…I still haven’t seen Schindler’s List either, though I’ve been wanting to watch it for YEARS!
