As a fellow writer on the subject, I applaud Kathi Macias. She never took the reader too far, nor did she give details in a disturbing or lingering way. At the same time, she told the realities of the situation without shrinking back from the truth. I also loved the way she never compromised from the goal: Abolition! No less. We raise awareness so others will join with us in this fight against modern slavery.
This book was difficult for me to read, because my heart mourns for each child who has to endure such awful abuse. But it was worth reading.
