I read a lot of books but have not really delved into the 'tragic life stories' genre before, but Slave Girl caught my eye on the shelf and even though the subject matter is unpleasant I was really struck by the element of hope in the book. Sarah has been to hell and back but she survived to tell the tale. Other people in that situation would have accepted their fate and given up but she kept fighting and eventually escaped. I felt like I was with her every step of the way and respect and admire Sarah for her courage and resiliance.
I was shocked to discover that 70% of the prostitutes in Amsterdam's red light district are forced to work there by greedy gangsters. Sarah's voice needs to be heard so that tourists to that city know the misery that goes on behind those windows. The corrupt police should be named and shamed and a full investigation into the local government needs to be conducted so girls like Sarah shouldn't have to go through that ordeal ever again.

Last year I wrote Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave to try and raise awareness about trafficking, so after my research for it I was expecting a lot of the horrific ordeal that Sarah describes in her book, but many others may not be. This book is a must-read and is very well-written. You will cry while reading Sarah's heart-breaking story, and you will feel disgusted, sick, and angry, but it's a story that needs to be read. No one should have to go through this. Slave Girl addresses a lot of common misconceptions surrounding prostitution - mainly that these women must've got into it by choice. Society doesn't pay attention to the reason prostitutes are doing what they're doing. They don't stop and think how they got into that situation - far better to ignore it than have to deal with the horrendous fact that trafficking is a huge global problem that makes a hell of a lot of money for those involved, from the bottom right up to the very top. That woman working on a street corner or in a sauna or massage parlour that you see every day could be trafficked. In the UK, it is not hidden from view, but blatantly in your face - street corners, massage parlours freely advertising in phone boxes, on the net, in newspapers, and yet very little is done to protect these women from trafficking. Another misconception is that victims can just escape - it's not as simple as that. As Sarah says " Not all prisons have bars and walls - some are in the mind." Victims hardly ever speak out because they're subjected to unimaginable abuse and violence, or their families are threatened. They cannot escape because they are brainwashed into believing their captors and they don't know who to trust. In Sarah's case, she was further bound to her captors after being fed drugs just to get through her living hell.Read more ›

I read this book in a matter of hours. It was so compelling.
Being the same age as Sarah and also living in the Newcastle area, this book really struck home.
My husband also read the book and we talked for hours afterwards about Sarah's ordeal.
If Sarah ever reads this comment... I wish you all the best in the future - you deserve it x x x

What a heartbreaking true life account of a vulnerable young woman. That one person can go through so much pain, suffering and violence and survive is a testament to Sarah. This story had me gripped from beginning to end and allowed me to see more into a world you hear about but thankfully that I have never experienced. This book must have taken a lot out of Sarah sharing her experience of many years of child abuse, her abuse during her time in care and her trafficking ordeal where she was made to work in the red light district of Amsterdam. Throughout all of this Sarah came through. She lived to tell her story. I wish Sarah all the best for her future and hope she understands that by sharing this story she has in someway shared her strength.

I have never been to Amsterdam but I always imagined the famous Red Light District was this: a sort of well-managed Disneyland of sex where cheerful and healthy hookers happily ply their trade for curious tourists and boozy, high-spirited, sexually adventurous lads on stag nights. Sarah Forsyth's harrowing account reveals a sordid, brutal culture where sex-trafficked women are held as slaves and exploited by ruthless pimps - themselves engaged in vicious turf wars with each other. Conned by an advert, Sarah travels to Amsterdam believing she will be taking up a post as a nanny, only to be hustled out of the airport, bundled into a car and driven into Hell on Earth. Sarah's story is extremely distressing - and not just her nightmare experience as an unwilling Amsterdam sex slave. Her troubles begin in childhood with an abusive father and further abuse suffered in various care homes. I do like to read the occasional misery memoir, but this one was almost too much to bear. Approach this book with caution; it is deeply disturbing.

READING THIS BOOK HAS CHANGED MY MIND ABOUT PROSTITUTES, I ALWAYS THOUGHT OF THEM AS HARD FACED UNCAREING AND COMMON, BUT I NOW FEEL THEY ARE NORMAL, FEELING AND THOUGHTFUL PEOPLE, WITH VERY SADLIVES, THE HORRORS SARAH WENT THROUGH MADE ME FEEL FOR HER VERY DEEPLY, AND THE WAY SHE WAS TRICKED INTO GOING TO AMSTERDAM WAS CRUEL, AND THE FACT HER MOTHER THOUGHT SHE WAS PHONEING HER, WAS CRUEL TO HER MOTHER AS WELL, THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN JAILED FOR LIFE, AND THE POOR GIRL WHO HAD HER HEAD BLOWN OFF HER SHOULDERS WELL WHAT CAN ONE SAY ABOUT THAT????? A VERY COMPELLING READ, HOPE SARAH HAS A HAPPY FUTURE,
