Renting Lacy: A Story of America's Prostituted Children (A Call to Action)

The average age of entry into prostitution in America is 13-years-old. Forced into a life they never chose, manipulated, abused, and tortured at the hands of the pimps who control them, our country's children are sold on the streets, on the internet, and at truck stops across America every night. They aren't bad kids who made bad choices. They are victims of child sex trafficking. They come from our neighborhoods, our schools, our churches, and sometimes our own homes.

    Story
    "Distressing Reality..."

    though this is a fictionalized account, it is taken from hundreds of interviews with real children living through the hell of underground sex trades that function everywhere--and probably closer than you think. A real eye opener and a call to action.

    Story
    "Forever changed"

    This story is a must read for anyone who needs to know the truth about sex trafficking. I will never be the same after knowing what I now know. We cannot allow our children to be victims. I will be a voice for the voiceless.
