The book is very heart wrenching at times, you can truly feel the desperation and helplessness she went through at different points. But you also see the determination she has to never give in and to keep fighting. That is probably what saved the author's life. She just never gave up. She is obviously a smart, strong, capable girl which really drives home the point that this can happen to anyone.
I'm grateful to have had the chance to read her story and to see a bit more clearly what sexual slavery looks like in America. I would have thought that I would recognize it if I saw it happening to someone I knew, and this book has shown that you have to be much more vigilant than just looking at the surface of things.
The experience related here vividly presented the existence of unspeakable evil. The only way to imagine suitable justice requires me to believe there is a Hell.
There are people who are beyond redemption - even with a most merciful God.
The book also convincingly conveyed that even strong people from good circumstances are vulnerable. Slavery is not confined to poor parts of town nor to people who have serious character flaws.
God bless this woman for her willingness to speak. I can't begin to imagine how difficult this was to recount the experience in the hopes that others could be spared.
Yet, curiously, it makes me wonder that prostitutes are arrested while those who take advantage of them are often left loose. Severity of the crime varies, but sex offenses are not "victimless crimes."
A well-written book that effectively informs and convinces.
Buy it, read it, and think! If you note some of these symptoms in the people around you, say something.

Also the last half was just too preachy and repetitive and sounded like she was trying to convince her readers it REALLY happened.
