"I guarantee that if you read this book, your heart will be broken--which is why you must read this book. Our hearts ought to be broken by the suffering of women and girls throughout the world. . . . Together we could help thousands of women and girls move from despair to hope! I challenge you to read this book and then pray the simple prayer that I have prayed: God, what is mine to do?"--From the Foreword by Lynne Hybels, advocate for global engagement, Willow Creek Community Church
"More than just a collection of stories, this book also serves as a call for action. Forgotten Girls compels readers to listen to these rarely heard voices."--Rhonda M. McEwan, EMQ, April 2010
"Forgotten Girls may be the most emotionally moving book you will add to your library this year."--Church Libraries, Winter 2009-10
"A book we all need to read about little girls and women who are living in parts of the world that most of us never even think about. After reading, be prepared to want to do something to spread the word of the mistreatment of women and children."--Beverly Dillow, Retailers + Resources, November/December 2009
"Through riveting, firsthand accounts, Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett take you on a mind-blowing, heart-expanding global expedition as they tell stories of the most defenseless and voiceless of our time--women and children. Forgotten Girls is an unforgettable read, one that can convert our lack of awareness into meaningful, urgent action!"--Beth Booram, author of Awaken Your Senses
"This is a moving and inspiring collection of personal stories about real girls from Asia to Africa surviving violence, abuse, discrimination and injustice . . . and the role of God's hand in turning lives of desperation into lives of hope. Strom and Rickett make the facts and sociocultural realities of their worlds come alive, and they challenge us to question our own assumptions about whether or not any single person can make a difference. . . . Everyone's help is needed to truly end this oppression and abuse."--Dean Hirsch, global ambassador, World Vision International
