Publisher's Summary

Named a Top Ten Amazing Audiobook for Young Adults by the Young Adult Library Services Associate (YALSA)!

Five teens victimized by sex trafficking try to find their way to a new life in this riveting companion to the New York Times best-selling Tricks from Ellen Hopkins, author of Crank.

In her best-selling novel, Tricks, Ellen Hopkins introduced us to five memorable characters tackling enormous questions: Eden, the preacher's daughter who turns tricks in Vegas and is helped into a child prostitution rescue; Seth, the gay farm boy disowned by his father who finds himself without money or resources other than his own body; Whitney, the privileged kid coaxed into the life by a pimp and whose dreams are ruined in a heroin haze; Ginger, who runs away from home with her girlfriend and is arrested for soliciting an undercover cop; and Cody, whose gambling habit forces him into the life but who is shot and left for dead.

And now, in Traffick, these five are faced with the toughest question of all: Is there a way out? How these five teenagers face the aftermath of their decisions and experiences is the soul of this story that exposes the dark, ferocious underbelly of the child trafficking trade. Heart wrenching and hopeful, Traffick takes us on five separate but intertwined journeys through the painful challenges of recovery, rehabilitation, and renewal to forgiveness and love. All the way home.

its a series, so be consistent

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

it drove me crazy that they didn't use the same voice actors from the first book. its a series, and a lot of different main characters. using the same voices would have added a lot of continuity.

voice to characters

I love Ellen Hopkins books and this put a nice twist to following the characters. Enjoyed very much although I do miss the patterns of the words on pages so will still pick up the book and add to my collection.

Great continuance left me wanting more

This was a great follow up to Tricks and the ending left a wide opening for a third which I only hope will keep up the great work

Excellent book of HOPE!

This was a wonderful book, of course it was the 2nd book in a 2-book set, the 1st book being "Tricks"
The way it literally began exactly where Tricks ended. The stories of the 5 "main" people these books have followed (so to speak) has been amazing, sad at times. However the hope each character brings is such a great lesson to take away from such horrible experiences. This book series most definitely shares the most real & raw things that literally happen each and every day. To show that with all of the horrible ways people, especially young people, can "fall into" or "be forced" into ways of life that are almost hard to believe. In this book I was thrilled with the way each and every one of the 5 main characters. Found that their is help & hope out there. That through all of the ugly in this world. There is beauty and HOPE!

Performance put me to sleep almost

It was really hard to listen to some of the story. The speakers had no emotion it seemed.

Simplistic, but good YA fiction.

I enjoyed this book, along with her others. The story concluded a little neatly, but it was interesting. Recommend.
