First released in 1996, Somebody's Daughter takes us inside the lives of real players in Canada's prostitution game. This book is about what we don't know about prostitution and perhaps what we don't want to know; what goes on inside that violent underworld know as The Game, and who the girls in the tight skirts really are. Author and reporter Phonse Jessome traces the short careers of several young girls actively recruited by pimps and describes the anti-pimping efforts of law enforcers who work to get teenage girls out the The Games and off the streets.
