Shyima Hall was born in Egypt on September 29, 1989, the seventh child of desperately poor parents. When she was eight, her parents sold her into slavery. Shyima then moved two hours away to Egypt's capitol city of Cairo to live with a wealthy family and serve them eighteen hours a day, seven days a week. When she was ten, her captors moved to Orange County, California, and smuggled Shyima with them. Two years later, an anonymous call from a neighbor brought about the end of Shyima's servitude-but her journey to true freedom was far from over. A volunteer at her local police department since she was a teenager, Shyima is passionate about helping to rescue others who are in bondage. Now a U.S. citizen, she regularly speaks out about human trafficking and intends to one day become an immigration officer. In Hidden Girl, Shyima candidly reveals how she overcame her harrowing circumstances and brings vital awareness to a timely and relevant topic. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “The balance of this affecting and enlightening memoir tells the story of how [Shyima Hall]…survived and, ultimately, thrived. Unfortunately, her story is not unique. She points out that there are almost 43,000 slaves in the US at any given time. By giving a face to one hidden girl, Hall has given a face to many.”


  • Hall has given a face to many. This is an excellent book for both individual reading and classroom use. Booklist
  • “Hall’s true story gives a face to the horrors of modern slavery and makes for very compelling listening.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Vitally draws attention to a global crisis.”
