Format: Paperback
This was a good book to read if you want to learn more about what is going on regarding human trafficking in the US. It mainly covers what goes on in massage parlors and undercover investigations regarding it. There are a few short interviews done with various people as well. You'll also learn about stuff that goes on in other countries, but not too much in comparison to what is covered in the US. I think the reason why this book didn't get more stars in its rating from me is because I've read about 40 human trafficking books and there are quotes from some of the other books I've read. No matter what, the fact that it seems to go on each day in each neighborhood, hopefully will wake up people to wanting to stop it and to know that "normal" men are willing to harm other people, while there are other men who are lost and don't realize who these women are that they are abusing (and they won't even understand that it is abuse).

I didn't watch the DVD portion, but I think it is awesome that they have a study portion included with this!!! I think if you are just starting to learn about human trafficking, this is a good book to read. I enjoyed much of it!!! Let's go bring slavery to an end!

Trafficking is everywhere....yes, in your area too. Do not be ignorant. Read and become aware of what is happening and what to do concerning it. This would be a great high school book as well as book study for adults and churches. Become aware of a catastrophic sin which is not discussed. This riveting book begins with the cover and does not cease until the book is finished.

In "Not in My Town," Dillon Burroughs and Charles Powell share graphic stories of the victims of human trafficking and modern day slavery that are heart-wrenching. Everyone needs to read this book, see the video, share it with someone else, and choose at least one of the suggested ways to help fight human trafficking.

This book is great for exposing people to the ugliness and reality of human trafficking in the US and around the world. It is not extensive and the authors suggest more research but this is a great start. I am thankful they gave practical tips that anyone can do to help end trafficking. I have yet to view the DVD.
