The characters that desperately try to find and rescue these kids are wonderful and brave! They have interesting back stories, Mex, Darius, and Cade. This storyline is based in Denver and there is a reason for that. It's the traveling center of the U.S.
"It's become more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns." The penalties need to be harsher for all levels of this horrific, traumatic, painful, life-destroying crime. The original sellers, the traffickers, and the buyers, so many men and even some women, doing this to children? These are horrific, appalling, disgusting people. This is an amazing book, that will rock you to your soul.
Little by little we come to know about child trafficking.
This book is fine fine reading. I couldn't put it down. Peg Brantley has done an amazing job of telling a difficult story.
Have you ever heard the phrase, "It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it"? This trafficking is a dirty, horrendous business, but Peg Brantley has stepped up and written a compelling book in order to educate us about it. Thank you, Peg! I needed to know more, not realizing I had lacked the knowledge, myself.
This book was hard to read, but Brantley handled the topic in a straightforward manner which made the subject easier to digest. There are other reviews here that deal with the subject of the book; therefore I am going to comment on what has been somewhat overlooked, the writing of the the story.
Let me make it clear, I do not know Peg Brantly, personally. I have read her newsletter, volunteered to read the advanced copy of the book, and chose to review it here. One reason I found it compelling was the writing that told the story. It haunts me now, some weeks past my initial reading. The characters of all the people were so well told I find myself thinking of them as real. The people participating in this activity scare me, personally, for families of young girls, and most of all, the millions of girls, worldwide, who are at risk. Brantley brought that to me with words. She evoked sadness, pity, helplessness, anger and more from me with words.
Her descriptions of clothing, locations, actions, thoughts of other people, etc. rolled through my mind as if I were there. The descriptions flowed in and out of the narrative so smoothly, the scenes were in my mind without a conscious awareness of when it had been done. This talent also shines in regard to the spoken word. Every conversation, remark, question, or statement was consistent with what I knew of each of them. That element and the descriptions helped make this a very smooth read.
The cover, organization, format and lack of errors added to the smooth reading experience, as well. I am impressed with the resource list provided at the end of the book. It gives readers the opportunity to further educate, donate, or find an active role in this effort, if they so desire. I am convinced there were many hours researching, conducting interviews, and meetings with persons which are trying to stop these trafficking rings. I do not believe this could have been written without in-depth research. It is richer, but not dull, with the figures cited in the text.
What we readers received when we opened this book was a compelling story, based on fact, about a sordid business, being conducted in our own country, right under our noses. Brantley's writing skills gave her the voice to speak to our hearts and minds. She reached me. Will she reach others? We, who have read this book, hope for others to read the book and talk to others about what they read.
I recommend this book to everyone who can read. It's a great book, reads smoothly, is not long, tells a compelling story, highlights a business that needs to be stopped and will open your heart and mind by the end. Get your copy!
