Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

While more and more people each day become aware of the dangerous world of human trafficking, many people in the U.S. believe this is something that happens to foreign women, men and children—not something that happens to their own children and neighbors.They couldn’t be more wrong.In this powerful true story, Theresa Flores shares how her life as an All-American, 15-year-old teenager was enslaved into the dangerous world of sex-trafficking—all while living at home with unsuspecting parents 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 human trafficking.Even more importantly, Theresa’s story and expertise as a counselor and licensed social worker help identify red flags that could prevent her plight from becoming the fate of an unsuspecting teenager. She discusses how she healed the wounds of sexual servitude and offers advice to parents and professionals through prevention tips, education and significant information on human trafficking in modern day America. With insights and perspectives from a doctor, a friend and her own brother, Theresa’s memoir provides a well-rounded portrait of the dark world of human trafficking and serves as a reminder of the most important element to overcoming slavery: hope.

About the Author

Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author, Theresa Flores is a survivor of human trafficking. Since she escaped the world of trafficking, she has become one of the country's most prominent advocates related to human trafficking awareness.

Ms. Flores has been a licensed social worker in Ohio for nearly 20 years. She received a Bachelors degree in Social Work from Ball State University in Indiana and a Masters degree in Counseling Education from the University of Dayton as a Human Development Specialist. She is featured by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center Museum in a traveling exhibit entitled,
Invisible Slavery.

As a much sought after international speaker and expert on human trafficking, Theresa was also appointed to the Ohio Attorney Generals Human Trafficking Commission in 2009 and has testified before the Ohio House and Senate in support of Human Trafficking Legislation. Her efforts were a major part of the success of SB235 being passed into law by Ohio Governor Strickland on December 23, 2010.

Along with her busy speaking schedule, Ms. Flores also runs a non-profit organization called S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) that engages people to help thwart the advances of teen prostitution and human trafficking in their local communities. Ms. Flores' story has been featured on MSNBC/The Today Show in an investigative series called
Sex Slaves: The Teen Trade.

Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author PeggySue Wells is the author of two-dozen titles including bestseller and audio finalist The Slave Across the Street which she co-authored with Theresa Flores.
PeggySue's books are published nationally and internationally, and have been translated into several languages. She writes fiction and non-fiction, memoirs, ghostwrites, and specializes in co-authoring. PeggySue is an engaging speaker, and hosts interactive workshops at schools where she shares the essential tips professionals use for writing.
