How Rocketbook Works. How Rocketbook Works.

Think of the little girls you know: your daughter, a niece, a friend's child. And then think about this: little girls are tossed away every day. All over the world, women and girls face starvationdisplacementilliteracysexual exploitationabuse In fact, statistics show that the world's most oppressed are overwhelmingly female. Moved by their plight, Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett took a trip across continents to partner with ministries working to help females and to interview girls in some of the most difficult places in the world. These pages hold those girls' stories: stories of deep pain and suffering, inspiring courage, and incredible hope. They are the stories of girls who have discovered their value in God's eyes, in the midst of cultures that have rejected them. They are stories of rescue and redemption by God working through compassionate people--people like you. These pages might hold pieces of your story as well, as the authors invite you to pray and speak on behalf of the millions of women and girls who still need to know how much they're worth. For each of the five sections of the book--physical suffering, education, sexual protection, prison and war, and spiritual life--the authors provide specific, practical action steps and prayer points that allow you to get involved as God leads. Opening these pages will open your eyes to situations you couldn't imagine, to places you've probably never been and to young girls--not so different from the ones you know--who are dearly loved by God. And our powerful God will help us as we read, speak and pray on their behalf, that the forgotten might become free.

I have been a human rights activist for many years now. I know in depth of the countless areas in our world where women are brutally (in all senses of the word) treated and cast aside as 'nothings'.
One gripping moment in the book for me was when an author for this book was in India, (about an hour or more away from a bustling urban city), visiting in 'one of' India's poorest of the poor's villages, where sewage was open and the dump was the only way for a child to bring home a bit of money. There, the author ran into a little girl in a worn, tattered dress, held together only by a safety pin. To show this young girl some kindness and attention, she asked the young girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. The child's response was that of, "I'm not supposed to be anything".

We know that education is the only way out of poverty...the only way to make it any where at all in this world. But many girls don't even know about that. And this poor child is one of the millions who doesn't know anything about education. She only knows about the indecency by how she is treated, and that is her norm for living.

This book was extremely well written. It could not have been written more constructively than it was in regards to searching and telling stories of deplorable and extremely harsh livelihoods for those born as girls in countless societies. I am personally very thankful to those who commit themselves to missionary work on a periodic basis, and to those who live their lives as missionaries in harsh, remote and unbelievable conditions. Being able to work with girls and women, educating them with the simplicities of their surroundings, as well as helping them with their self esteem is a gratification which only a missionary can receive and rejoice in, whether they are doing it when they can, or as their mission on earth (pardon the pun!).

I highly recommend this book for all of it's educational content. It could not have been written more constructively than it was. I urge women to buy it and to pass it on to their sister-friends.

I enjoyed reading the many stories of how girls in various countries overcame their oppression or at least endured through the pain because of the love of Christ that reached them in some way. Poverty, rape, sex trafficking, physical abuse, verbal abuse, labor trafficking, and hardships in the family are addressed.

I had been wanting to read this book for some time and am really glad I finally did, as it was inspiring and very heart wrenching.

Every high school girl should read this! I donated it to the high school's library after I finished. Girls sold by their parents with the promise the man will have a job for them....the job of sex slave! Sex traffickers move the girls frequently to new places. It's a worldwide problem, even in urban America! It's shameful that more people don't do anything about it. If girls could read this book, they might think twice about running away from home and being on the streets. That nice guy that takes you in will most likely be your pimp! I don't remember if, but I think it addressed China's one child policy, which makes girls throw away! Now there are a lot of young men who can't find wives! Their civilization will eventually die out with the lack of women.

I think bringing attention to abused children in any country and to human trafficking is great. These writers certainly were doing more than a good deed. I would have liked more stories of "girls" that were saved and how they are doing now. However, that said, this would be a good starter book for those that are still uninformed.

I liked that this was a book that you could read a chapter and set down. Was an eye opener as to how females are treated in other countries.

Rape and sexual abuse of underage children will only disappear as each woman, in the present moment, takes responsibility to protect our ancestors future descendants. Do this by never allowing anyone to tell a "dirty joke" about the "farmer's daughter" or "jail bait" lusting, The politically correct, sort of OK response to allow the presentable cousin of child rape into the room. Every woman must save a girl, not just her own daughter.

This book is a tough but absolutely necessary read, for anyone but especially followers of Jesus Christ. It is factual, culturally matter of fact, and dwells on the healing, saving and redemptive power of Christ. Amazing stories of women/children beyond courage and of total faith in Jesus.
Forgotten Girls is a well written, and quick read. But, beware, it will change the way you think about the girls of the world. An annual must read!
