While more and more people each day become aware of the dangerous world of human trafficking, most people in the U.S. still believe this is something that happens to foreign women, men, and children - not something that happens to their own. In this powerful true story, Theresa Flores shares how her life as an All-American, blue-eyed, blond-haired, 15-year-old teenager, who could have been your neighbor, was enslaved into the dangerous world of sex trafficking while living in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit.

Her story peels the cover off of this horrific criminal activity and gives dedicated activists as well as casual bystanders a glimpse into the underbelly of trafficking. And it all happened while living at home without her parents ever knowing about it.

Involuntarily involved in a large underground criminal ring, Ms. Flores endured more as a child than most adults will ever face their entire lives. In this book, Ms. Flores discusses how she healed the wounds of sexual servitude and offers advice to parents and professionals on preventing this from occurring again, educating and presenting significant facts on human trafficking in modern day America.

    " Cannot say enough about the importance of reading this book! Ms Flores has lived through hell and her story is worth your time to read it...it is a tough read, but like i say before...totally worth it!!! "

    " In this powerful, disturbing book, Theresa Flores shares the story about how, as a 15 year old all- American, blue-eyed blonde teen living in the suburbs of Detroit, she became the victim of human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation. When most people think about this topic, they picture people in third world countries. Ms. Flores, who has appeared on the Today Show, is now a social worker and internationally recognized lecturer on the topic of human trafficking. She describes in shocking detail how this horrible crime is being carried out here in the U.S. in ordinary neighborhoods like our own. The book offers advice to parents and professionals in an attempt to stop this unspeakable crime. "

    " While the writing was awkward and mediocre, the topic was very compelling. I was disgusted by the behavior of the abusers--I felt myself getting angrier with each additional act of sexual violence upon the author. And most upsetting to me--these teenagers and men were never caught or punished for their heinous crimes. The author was only a vessel for their debauched pleasure; an object to be used, mocked, and humiliated. A sad read, but a necessary one, if we are to ever stop such horrible practices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megrandel | 12/26/2013

    " I read this book in about four hours. I was left with many questions, as are many critics of the book....Some of my initial questions were: Why didn't she tell someone? Why didn't she just not do it? Is this really an example of "human trafficking"? However, as I think further about it, I feel bad about asking these questions, as I can't imagine what she went through and what I would do if I was in the situation. She is a very brave woman for telling her story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 12/19/2013

    " This was an eye opening true story about a young teenager who got caught up in being a sex slave in order to protect her family. A fast-paced, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Beth | 11/25/2013

    " The writing is choppy, but the story is compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Bujtas | 10/7/2013

    " I didn't want to read it. I was squeemish about it. But if this story and others like it exist because the authors are strong enough to put them to paper, I need to listen, regardless of my own discomfort with the material. I am glad to have been given this story, to share with others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 7/28/2013

    " I think this is a must read book for everyone. The story is set in Detroit - just a couple of hours from where I live. This is a heartbreaking true story and describes a horrific crime that needs to end. One thing I appreciated about this book was the brutal honesty without the extreme details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen | 6/13/2013

    " I was one of the many that thought human trafficking was a problem of the east, but after reading this book, I realized the truth. This is a very emotional book. My heart goes out to the author for what she experienced all those years ago. "

    " Wow...as other reviewers have said you cant really 'like' this book, but it was incredibly informative and eye opening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talma | 7/20/2012

    " Recently finished this book - so horrible to think such things happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheriene | 6/28/2012

    " Disturbing to think human trafficking can happen to an upper class teen ager with two parents. And, that teachers, police, etc. did nothing to help her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri | 4/20/2012

    " Wow! What a shocking and unbelievable account of this woman as a young girl. Not what I was expecting and I really learned a lot! A fast read because you won't be able to put it down. Might not be the most well written memoir I have read but it is written with honesty and passion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Freeze | 11/24/2011

    " A great book that exposes the relatively unknown would of sex trafficking. A hard story to read, but one that needs telling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisa Wilhelm | 9/25/2011

    " This book has a good balance of personal recollections and practical knowledge for adults on the look out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 7/9/2011

    " This books is haunting. It will certainly make more aware of the young people around me. This is a good read or listen for anyone with teens in their lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami Becker | 6/17/2011

    " Heartbreaking & painful to read, but every parent, teacher, youth leader should read this to be aware & to protect the young people in their lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlin | 7/25/2010

    " This book was such an eye-opener. So many Americans are naive about human trafficking and believe it is not an issue in our country, how wrong they are! This book is a must-read for parents and young adults alike. We should become more aware of what is going on under our noses. "
