LoveReading View on Lost Riders

A gripping and heart stopping story, Lost Riders uncovers the shocking story of child slavery today. Rashid is eight when his uncle sells him and his younger brother to a man who promises him a new life in Dubai. But the promises are quickly broken; Rashid is separated from his bother and uncle, he is made to take a new name, and he is forced to work as a camel jockey in races with high stakes and a high price for failure. Rashid thinks of nothing but escape. Will he be able to get free and return home to Pakistan?
