  Is Anybody's Daughter Ever Really Safe?

(from Goodreads)
Based on the real-life horrors faced by thousands of girls, award-winning author Pamela Samuels Young takes readers deep inside the disturbing world of child sex trafficking in a fast-paced thriller that educates as much as it entertains.

Thirteen-year-old Brianna Walker is ecstatic. She's about to sneak off to meet her first real boyfriend—a boyfriend she met on Facebook. But Brianna is in for a horrifying surprise because her boyfriend doesn't exist. Instead, Brianna unwittingly becomes the captive of a ring of drug dealers- turned-human traffickers who prey on lonely girls from dysfunctional homes. But they’ve made a big mistake in targeting Brianna because she doesn’t meet either of those criteria.

Brianna’s Uncle Dre, a man with his own criminal past, is determined to find the niece who is more like a daughter to him. Rather than sit back and rely on police to bring Brianna home, Dre scours the dark corners of Los Angeles looking for her. He is stunned to learn that the trafficking of children isn’t just happening in other countries. It’s occurring at epidemic levels right in his own backyard.

Dre is not alone in his desperate search. Loretha Johnson knows this world well. A social worker who previously lived “the life,” Loretha now dedicates her time to saving as many young girls as she can find. She turns out to be an invaluable resource for Dre, who ultimately gets a lead on The Shepherd, a mastermind in the trafficking world whose every move is fueled by ego and greed. Dre vows to bring his reign of terror to an end.

While Brianna makes a futile effort to thwart her captors, Dre is getting closer and closer to finding her. The woman he loves, attorney Angela Evans, knows the dangers faced by sexually exploited children because she represents them in juvenile court. Angela lends her moral support and, eventually, an important clue to Brianna’s whereabouts.

As he races against the clock, Dre ultimately comes up with a daring plan—one that puts many lives in danger, including his own. But will he find Brianna before it's too late?

 Human Trafficking- everyone's horror, especially if your have young daughter, nieces, grand-daughters.  Everyone's daughter is a target.  The author grabs you from  the moment you open the book.  It will tear at your heart . Can you even imagine the fear and pain you would feel if your daughter or loved one had been taken and possibly taken into human trafficking? There are probably very few who even think of human sex trafficking.  The author awakens you to the horrifying  issue.
 This is an extremely serious issue that is happening everyday all around us.You may stop and seriously think about the evil that lurks around every corner, preying on young girls. Social networking can be quite dangerous, so know what your young girl is doing on the internet. There are a lot of predators everywhere. Young people don't even think about what is out there that will hurt them.  They are so trusting and believing. They sometimes think they know it all. That's the innocence of youth. As a parent, grandparent and anyone with young loved ones or even if you have a friend that  has a young one,  should think that this could very possibly happen to them.

This story sees the sides from the family and the legal side. The book picks up where Angela and Dre's lives left off in BUYING TIME, Book One. Human trafficking hit them close to home. THIS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYBODY'S YOUNG GIRL.  The author, Ms. Young wrote about an issue that everyone should realize is right in front of us.  We need to perhaps have a talk with our daughters and other young females that they need to be aware, keep their eyes open and take in their surroundings.  Every young girl should read this book and then perhaps discuss it with a trusted grown up.  The author wrote a book that everyone should read and take to heart.  This is real. Praise to Ms. Young.

I would give this book a solid 5 CHAINS.

I was given a complimentary copy of ANYBODY"S DAUGHTER by Pamela Samuels Young from   PUYB for my honest review.No other compensation took place.
