Book Review: Stolen by Katariina Rosenblatt PhD, Cecil Murphey

Publisher's Blurb: There is hope, even on the darkest of days

Katariina Rosenblatt was a lonely and abused young girl, yearning to be loved, wanting attention. That made her the perfect target. On an ordinary day, she met a confident young woman--someone Kat wished she could be like--who pretended to be a friend while slowly luring her into a child trafficking ring. A cycle of false friendships, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped.

As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, her ultimate escape, and her passionate efforts to now free other victims, you'll see that not only is sex trafficking happening frighteningly close to home--it's also something that can be stopped. Stolen is a warning, a celebration of survival, and a beacon of hope that will inspire you.

My Review: I think the main character's parents should have been arrested for neglect and child abuse. These things would not have happened to this child if, her father had not abused her, if her mother had a backbone, if she was taught to value herself, if anyone paid any attention to her at all. Honestly, I am not sure why I requested books like this because they bother me. I dislike seeing how the situation could have been rectified but wasn't. I really can't say whether I would recommend this book or not, it isn't badly written or anything, it is just a bad story.
