Wow, this story was so real! Everyone is engaging in social networking during the Internet age and we hear more and more about people getting duped. Anybody’s Daughter is a well written story about this very subject. As parents we try to protect our children from the unknown, but they find crafty ways to deceive us.
Brianna is a 13-year old girl living with her mother after her father was killed in the war. Brianna’s Uncle Dre gave her an I-phone as a gift and the trouble begins. She created a Face book account unbeknownst to her mother and meets a boy named Jaden on line. They correspond and plan to meet one morning before school.
The best made plans go awry and Brianna is kidnapped into the world of teenage sex trafficking. There is no 14-year old Jaden and Brianna is afraid but believes that her Uncle Dre will rescue her. Uncle Dre has put his criminal past behind him until Brianna is kidnapped. He enlists the aid of family and friends to help find his niece. The story takes place over a period of 5 days and it is very intense, heartbreaking, and quite disturbing. The boldness of the players in the sex trafficking business is sickening to say the least and young girls are lured into it with false promises or just kidnapped. The very people who are supposed to protect our children can be just as greedy and callous.
Brianna’s story had a better ending than most that are pulled into this underworld of greed and evil. Pamela Samuels Young did an excellent job of creating this fast paced story!
I almost put the book down many times, as the story became too pornographic for my tastes. (Although, those segments were very brief.) I felt the story could have been told sans the titillating adjectives (from the lusting viewpoint of the abuser.) Save those for the adult character's in racy romance novels. I honestly found those passages quite disgusting in this book, being the very topic was exploitation! If not for the misplaced 'lustiness', I would have given it a higher rating.
Overall, the book does depict quite well the experience of a young girl snatched into the world of trafficking. However, due to the descriptive parts I mentioned above, I hesitate to recommend this book.
There were a few typos, but they were not a glaring distraction. It was not difficult to read because of poor writing or a hard to follow storyline, but because of the atrocities that were portrayed. It actually made me feel sort of dirty just reading about the depravity of the antagonists.
