Publishers Description From Brazil, a country struggling between prosperity and suffering, fertile forests and empty wasteland, comes this harrowing report of human misery girls as young as ten, driven to child prostitution. Join Matt Roper as he travels by bus, car, boat and even canoe to uncover the empty underworld of these street girls. Moving from the sprawling metropolises of Rio de Janeiro, to the white beaches of Recife and Fortaleza, and to remote towns and villages in the drought-stricken interior and dense Amazon jungle, Matt comes face to face with pimps, brothel owners, mafia leaders, child traffickers, and the girls themselves children trapped in an adult world. Remember Me, Rescue Me records the voices of those desperate to be rescued and at least remembered as we are led on a journey of exploration, insight, and social justice and, are brought to a new understanding of what it means to have faith in God.
