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.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
