The Ones that Disappeared
Rating: 5 / 5
Esra, Miran and Isa are children caught up in the horror that is modern- day slavery. Somewhere in an unknown country they tend plants day in, day out, as prisoners of the Snakeskin Gang. The children have lost their families and their freedom, but they have not lost hope, and when a moment comes where they can make their escape, they run.
Alone and afraid, they set off to find safety, guided by loyalty and love and faith in Miran’s story that “the river will lead us home”.
The Ones that Disappeared is a story for all young adults and their parents. It’s an exciting and sometimes harrowing tale that both educates and inspires. Esra, Miran and Isa are typical of three of the 30 million enslaved people in the world today. If this situation is ever going to change, we owe it to them to know and read their stories.
