Matt Roper

Matt Roper is the author of Street Girls and Remember Me, Rescue Me. He spent eight years with the Daily Mirror as a journalist. He and his Brazilian wife now live and work in Brazil. Matt speaks fluent Portuguese.

"This is a truly important book." -- Steve Chalke "Compelling and poignant reportage that painstakingly exposes Brazil's darkest secret.Matt Roper is that rare journalist who didn't turn his back on the trauma and misery he witnessed for the adrenaline rush of the next deadline. In parts heart-breaking, in others uplifting, this is a story that needs to be told." -- Oliver Harvey The Sun "Few journalists remain this committed to exposing an issue. Once you get your headlines it is all too easy to move on to the next big expose. Not only is this a dark side of Brazil that Matt continues to highlight with passion, but his writing takes you so vividly into children's' lives. You are unable to stop thinking about them. Few books can do that." -- Chris Rogers BBC Panorama
