Brazil's BR-116 motorway has been described as the worst road in the world. According to the Brazilian government, a child is sold for sex every ten miles. Thousands of young girls, some as young as nine, are forced to sell their bodies to truck drivers to bring money home to their families. Businessmen and politicians organize child prostitution rackets. The girls refer to the 2,700-mile motorway as the 'Highway to Hell'. Their childhoods are stolen there, and many are trapped in unimaginable abuse and violence. This book documents this untold tragedy in the form of a journey up the motorway, as Matt meet the girls and hears their stories, as well as encounters with the truck drivers, pimps, brothel owners, traffickers and the brave individuals trying to make a difference. It is also a journey in faith as Matt grapples with what his Christian faith has to say about it and discovers how God wants him to respond.
