I am not certain why but, I did not expect this book to be very good. However, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I loved it. The story is written well. You are drawn into her world where you can see how she developed into who she is now. It is a hopeful story of abuse and the power of friendship. I played it everywhere I went. Loved it!

Storyline is fascinating. A little slow in the beginning but once I got into it I couldn’t put it down. I listened to it everywhere I went!

It took me some time to get used to the narrator's voice, which I found difficult to understand at times. I think it would have been better to have an actress read the book rather than the author. Having said that, the book is on a very important topic, child sex trafficing. The stories are told in a manner where the reader can understand and identify with the subject. How thru a series of bad choices and rotten luck the girls become slaves to their pimps. How and why the girls got into the situaltion they find themselves in is explained so that you can see how it happened to these young helpless girls. But most importantly the reader is educated in the politics of the sex trade. I have a greater understanding of societies prejudices against these young victims. Which only makes it harder for them to leave their situation. The book brings a dark and uncomfortable subject into the light . I will never look at a sex worker the same way. I would definitely recommend this book!
