about

He'd been her friend for years. He said he loved her. Then she realised she didn't know him at all.When everything seemed to be falling apart in Sophie's life, she was thankful for her friend Kas, who was always at the end of a phone, ready to listen and to offer comfort and advice.Her father's cold dislike of her and then her parents' divorce had left her with a deep distrust of men.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crazy! This story was so crazy to me and eye opening. I couldn't put it down...partly because I wanted it to be over and just know how it ended. It can be difficult to read in parts (because it is not fiction). I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. I literally couldn't put this book down. It is such a real written story, and it's heart wrenching when you read about the love she can't give because of the betrayal she's encountered. Such. An. Amazing. Read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring! This book was a gift, and I could not have been more captivated. I read it in one day and was holding onto her story every step of the way. It is a incredibly powerful read, about what it is like to be trafficked.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Storyline- Poor Writing Overall, this storyling was very compelling and the message was amazing. But the writing in general could have been stronger. It felt choppy in some areas and more like an outline as opposed to a cohesive series of events that unfolded. I would still recommend though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring Great book, short but completely heart breaking and inspiring. Sad that this had to happen but where she came home and was too scared to tell them he was back made the book unique.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quick Read! Book was a quick read and really easy to get into. The story is tragic but I found it could of went into more details as i found that the story jumped around a lot and read more like an outline in some parts. Other than that it was a good book!
