    Highway to Hell

    The Road Where Childhoods Are Stolen

    Author: Matt Roper
    The black heart of human exploitation and the brave few seeking change

    A child is sold for sex every ten miles on Brazil’s BR-116 motorway. This 2,700-mile road is “The Highway to Hell” for the thousands of children, some as young as nine, who are trapped in sophisticated child prostitution rackets organized by businessmen and politicians.

    An experienced journalist, Matt Roper has witnessed the extent of the trafficking firsthand. Highway to Hell documents his journey on this road. He meets the girls and hears their stories; he interviews truck drivers, pimps, brothel owners, and traffickers; and talks to the brave souls who are trying to make a difference.

    Part documentary, part personal memoir, Matt honestly shares his struggles to understand what his Christian faith has to say about the things he encounters and how God wants him to respond.

    Matt Roper is the author of Street Girls and Remember Me, Rescue Me. He spent eight years with the >i>Daily Mirror as a journalist. He and his Brazilian wife now live and work in Brazil. Matt speaks fluent Portuguese.
