Read from March 27 to April 16, 2012

Reading about eleven year olds who are victims of sex trafficking isn't the easiest thing to do over breakfast, but I kept on reading. This heart wrenching book interweaves story of Rachel, who was once a sexually exploited youth and her fight out of that world, and Rachel's current work with GEMS, a nonprofit based in New York.

Straight forward and direct accounts left me sickened and outraged. I was left with this feeling of wondering what I could do in a world where young girls are for sale, and spreading the word is one way we can bring more awareness to this issue.
