This is so good, it's a story that needs to be told. Very true to life, very heartbreaking real. Something that I feel strongly about. I have a lot of books on my kindle, including this now on this subject,
So very well written, great details you can tell the author has done her homework on this subject,
Narratives bySandra Murphy who was was truly outstanding, gave it her all. Beautifully read.
To me it's a story that needs to be told. It happens everywhere, nowhere is this subject safe.
Not a story for the faint-hearted. This audiobook is about human trafficking and follows the story of three young girls. They are all different ages and from different backgrounds, but all suffer at the hands of their captors, plus they have to deal with the knowledge of the betrayal by someone they trusted.
Mex is the man who is drawn into the case by the wealthy family to investigate the disappearance of their daughter. He soon realises there are other missing girls and makes it his goal to get them back.
Overall I enjoyed the way the story was told and the narrator did a good job. I felt the male character voices could have been a little more masculine, especially Mex. But it didn't put me off continuing. Well worth a listen.
I was given a copy of this audiobook for an honest review.
This is a tuff one. Well written book. Hard story to listen to. Good to know that it's fiction. Horrible knowing that this book is based on reality and it happens every day.
With a title like TRAFFICKED it's pretty obvious that this book is about human trafficking. This is about young girls (and some boys) taken from their homes, neighborhoods and friends right here in the US. With the publisher's description and the other reviews I won't recap the actual story.
What I will say is I think the author did a wonderful job. She tells a story about trafficking for sex but the book doesn't get too descriptive. One thing I really liked is that through out the book the author adds what could be footnotes at the beginning on many chapters. I found myself writing these down and looking them up (Examples: Stockholm Syndrome in the Pimp-Victim Relationship By NATALIE KITROEFF , Selling Atlanta's children: What has and hasn't changed
By Jane O. Hansen, Special to CNN ). I think by weaving actual articles into the book increases credibility. Not that it's not believable because it is.
I think a different narrator would have been a good thing.
I paid for this book and did not get it for free. It's worth the credit.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book however for some this may prove to be a difficult read.

The Advocate series by Teresa Burrell pulls at the heartstrings as attorney Sabre Brown deals exclusively with cases involving abused children. Trafficked deals with young girls kidnapped and sold into prostitution and drug abuse. Author Peg Brantley has written a brutally honest novel about child sex trafficking that follows the cases of three girls. Listening to the descriptions of what the girls are forced to do is painful, but the problem is real and massive in scope. Every parent should listen to this novel.
