  "Teen point of view about sexual slavery" by CynKing57 (see profile) 09/22/17

Dime is thirteen and living in a foster home. She can barely remember someone who read to her. She is quiet and loves school. But when her foster parent begins drinking and her foster brother begins touching her inappropriately, she flees the home. An older girl, LA, sees her shivering and lends her a coast and buys her food. Soon she meets LA's Daddy. Daddy welcomes her to his place and buys her clothes and makes sure she is cared for. Only living with Daddy will cost Dime her innocence and her freedom. This book makes yoou think about sexual slavery, especially those young girls who cannot escape the thugs who control all aspects of their lives and who desperately want to escape but have no means of doing so. This was a riveting, very fast and heartbreaking book that will make you think "what can I do to help these young children"?
