Overview

Gabriela Mendoza puts a face to the gut-wrenching tragedy of the 3 million women and children that are abducted every year and sold into human sex trafficking. MORE THAN RICE gives the reader an up close and personal look into this dark world of girls between the ages of twelve and seventeen stolen and forced to work in brothels. After being kidnapped from her home in Manila, Gabriela is sent via cargo ship to Malaysia and joins a group of thirty girls in the Tent Room Barracks. It is there that Gabriela learns her destiny is not the brothel, but something much different. After completing "the list" she discovers her true mission is something even she is astonished by! While in the tent room barracks Gabriela morphs from a naïve, self-centered teenager into a compassionate and often fearless leader of the group. In the barracks Gabriel meets three soul mates and they form a lasting bond; readers are drawn into all four heart wrenching stories. MORE THAN RICE is more than just a good read - it is an invitation to join the author in making a difference in the world.
