Overview

When self ambition takes over one innocent Asian teenager's life, a horror lies ahead... Recent high school graduate, Imtiyaaz Muhammad is eager to leave Indonesia. She's always coveted working abroad, and, at last, the chance presents, assisted by a frequent customer and colleague at her place of work. She was told the Middle East was full of great opportunities in the 'hospitality' field and it's a journey worth-taking. Imtiyaaz is eager to find out and is ready to part with her grieving father of many years. The plane lands... Imtiyaaz is over the moon with the sparkling beauty & landscape of the Middle East, but it becomes clear in a matter of minutes, that her new home isn't what she'd imagined. She finds herself the 'property' of her new employer. With her passport seized, Imtiyaaz faces a daunting task of escape. The choices are: perform unspeakable acts and shut up...or risk being buried in desert alive. Complicit authorities are of no help, and, without a single person to lean on, Imtiyaaz must do it alone.

- Reviewed by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite In I'm Not Your Slave by Eric Reese, as young Imtiyaaz waits to board her flight at Jakarta International Airport, she believes that a brighter future is within her grasp. Thankfully she was introduced to Ishmael who ran a recruitment agency for the hospitality industry, and could finally escape her father. Imtiyaaz can now fulfill her dream of completing her education and maybe then her father will show her the love and attention she yearns for. Maybe he will stop his daily condemnation and know in his heart that losing his wife during childbirth was not her fault. As Imitiyaaz arrives at the hotel, she discovers that not only her belongings and documents have been taken from her, but so have her dreams. When a man arrives at the door of her hotel room, the reality of her situation becomes clear. The men keep arriving to use her at will, taking her self respect with them. Imtiyaaz is trapped, alone and scared. Will she ever find a way to escape. The subject matter of this book is rarely spoken about, and it has been written about here with brutal honesty. The use of flashbacks really helped me understand the backstory of the characters and the complex relationship between Imtiyaaz and her father. I thought the father's character was so broken due to losing his soulmate, the conflict within himself of wanting to show affection to his daughter but being unable to so was heartbreaking. I believe that if the father had been able to overcome his grief then maybe Imtiyaaz would not have left her native Indonesia. The horrific abuse Imtiyaaz experienced was related well, and showed how easily a young girl can fall into the trap of human trafficking under the guise of genuine work abroad. The narrative was descriptive and brought a harsh realism to the story. I thought the character development of Imtiyaaz was good and her determination to leave was executed perfectly in accordance with her personality. The scene between the main character and the police was chilling as she realizes that any chance of escape is futile. This is an eye-opening story that will send shivers down your spine as you realize that the problem of human trafficking still exists today.
