Publisher's Summary

Sex trafficking is currently a hot news topic, but it is not a new problem or just a problem in "other" countries. Every year, an estimated 80,000 American children are lured into the sex trade, some as young as eight years old. It is thought that up to 90 percent of victims are never rescued. Stolen is the true story of one survivor who escaped - more than once. First recruited while staying with her family at a hotel in Miami Beach, Katariina Rosenblatt was already a lonely and abused young girl who was yearning to be loved. She fell into the hands of a confident young woman who pretended friendship but slowly lured her into a child prostitution ring. For years afterward, a cycle of false friendship, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped. As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, listeners will quickly realize the frightening truth that these terrible things could have happened to any child - a neighbor, a niece, a friend, a sister, a daughter. But beyond that, they will see that there is real hope for the victims of sex trafficking. Stolen is more than a warning. It is a celebration of survival that will inspire.

Meh

I was interested in reading a book about trafficking and ended up feeling like I was being ministered to. I take issue with people saying god saved them from trafficking as if their god just didn't care about all the other women who were trafficked. Not a terrible book but nothing special.

Not a good book

This book is not very well written nor well narrated. It really was a waste of a credit

Christian faith based story of a survivor

Everything good that happens to the author, happens because of God. I was disappointed that there was so much about the author and all the good that she - a "female Moses" does along with her organization and, of course, God, and not enough detailed stories about actual experiences, except her own and that was just at the beginning of the book. The book soon starts sounding like a sermon. Not my cup of tea.

Important issue, inspiring witness, but confusing

This is an incredibly important issue, and the author is an incredibly inspiring figure, but the way the story was told was rather confusing to me. It was told in a way that seemed to twist and turn, come to a dramatic development, then just drop and shift to another time. The least compelling part was the actual narration, which is not meant to be a reflection on the narrator. I would have loved to hear this story told by the actual author. This is such a personal story, and highly emotional, with a lot of dialogue, that I wanted to hear the real author, not an actor. The narrator made a valiant attempt to breath life and emotion into the story, but because the story has so many sad and negative elements to it, as she tried to give those elements life, eventually her voice began to sound almost whiny, which I don't think would happen in another book. It was just an unfortunate combination for this audio book. All in all worth listening to, because of the importance of the story and the inspiration of the author, but toward the end, I had to force myself to continue.

An amazing story that captivates me completely

What did you love best about Stolen?

The whole story engaged the listener/reader the whole time. I liked the way that the author told her story in a humbling way and didn't really put blame on anyone for how things turned out, but saw that God had His eye on her the whole time.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a story of growth.

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She kind of read this as if my mom were reading ti to me using good expression, but nothing overly impressive. I have heard her narrate before and had enjoyed how she did the other book much better, but this one was well done regardless.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not really interested in tag lines....especially one about sex trafficking and its sad tale.

Any additional comments?

Keep in mind that this book is going to talk about sexual things, though not in much detail at all. This is definitely teen appropriate as it explains that the acts were done but not explicitly. Throughout the entire story, God is revealed and it is an honest account of how a child cn come out whole after much brokenness.

Eye opener (Not for little ones)

This changed my world view on trafficking. The title doesn't do it justice to the topic. We need to see the root cause when we witness the crum; we need to fix the real reason and not bandaid the issue.

Good eye opener

This was a good eye opening book into the world of human trafficking. The insight into how a boy or girl is lured into the nightmare was helpful.

Captivating

This is a captivating and inspiring memoir of young girl's abuse, grooming, trafficking and triumphs. Her faith and God's voice carry her through many trials. Her stories strike the heart of the reader and provoke empathy, compassion and advocacy for the voiceless among us. This is a must read!

Really poor

I have read trafficking stories before. This woman was not trafficked. Not by a long shot. She was just nearly taken advantage of a few times. Whilst i am glad she was not hurt, the book is totally false advertising. Not only this, but it was incredibly boring. And she went on and in and on about God and Jesus. It was more like going to church than reading a gritty survival story.

Moving & Inspirational

This book is emotional at times to hear the life story of a girl so young. But her journey is aspirational and inspiring. Highly recommended read!

Too religious for me

Far too much religion in this book. I love that she found hope in god, I wasn’t expecting it to be so religious

Interesting

Was interesting at the start but then dragged out. She strongly believed in God which wasn't really for me. Interesting story and a bit of an eye opener to the trafficking world we all live in, great to see she has made something of herself
