Publisher's Summary

Maelea is an average 11-year-old living in Anlong Veng, Cambodia. Her days consist of fishing in the Mekong River with her father, watching her younger sister Srey, cooking with her mother, and dancing joyfully throughout the hut.
When her sister becomes ill with dengue fever and the family worries she will die, her father journeys to the city in search of help. He returns with a doctor and a mysterious woman whom he tells Maelea she will now work for as a domestic servant.
Maelea is promised a door to a better future, including school, but finds herself trapped in a brothel instead. There she endures unimaginable torture, isolation, and is forced to sell her body up to 60 times a night for two years until one horrific act of terror becomes an unlikely saving grace.
Dance For Me is an honest and compassionate look into child sex trafficking. It will make you angry, it will make you sad, and it will inspire you to act for those who you cannot.
