it was ok

Everyone should be aware of this issue, but not necessarily all should read this particular book. As a novice writer, Rachel attempts to convince her readers that this issue is heinous and worthy of attention, but her writing skills do not match up with her ability to educate her readers. After 100 pages or so, I was tired of hearing her explain again and again how these girls are worthy of sympathy, abused and exploited, and in need of media attention. Of course I strongly agree that this issue needs to be addressed in our society, but I felt that this book could have been better written to encourage people to step up and take action.
