about

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.
Phonse Jessome, a native of Sydney, Nova Scotia, has been a reporter/producer for ATV for thirteen years. His first book, Murder at MacDonalds, won the 1995 Atlantic Booksellers' Award.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read This was a good read...but from someone who was there, the story is truly one-sided. While most of what is written did happen, some of it went down much differently. And just to let you have some insight years later, some of the girls who gave their stories for this book, are still in the prostitution business today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from every girl should read things I think that every mother or father should get their daughters to read this because you never know - they might be thinking about doing things that relate to this book and by reading it they will think twice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Somebody's Daughter This is a well-written investigative report into teen prostitution in the Maritimes. Interviews with run-away teens who are pulled into this lifestyle leave the reader with a shocking insight into the exploitation of young people, and the problems faced by the police crime task force.

From Our Editors

Most of us are familiar with the words hooker, john and pimp; most of us know that prostitution exists on the streets of every major Canadian city. Somebody’s Daughter uncovers what we don’t know about prostitution -- and perhaps don’t want to know, including what goes on inside the violent underworld known as ‘The Game’ and who the girls in the tight skirts really are. Phonse Jessome takes us inside the lives of real players, tracing the short careers of several young girls recruited by pimps and describing the anti-pimping efforts of law enforces.
