Rescuing Hope by Susan Norris

Rescuing Hope
Rescuing Hope by Susan Norris

 Every two minutes, evil strips innocence from a child and sells her into slavery for sex. Not in a third-world country, but in the United States of America. Before you take another breath, the next victim will be tricked or taken from her family by a profit-hungry criminal.

She could be a neighbor. A friend.Your sister. Your daughter. You.

At fourteen, Hope Ellis is the all-American girl with a good life—until the day she tries to help her mom with their cross-town move by supervising the movers. When they finish, one of the men returns to the house and rapes her. Held silent by his threats, darkness begins to engulf her. But the rape proves to be the least of Hope’s troubles. In a gasping attempt at normalcy, she succumbs to the attention of a smooth-talking man on the subway. He promises acceptance. He declares his love. He lures her out from under the shelter of her suburban life.

Hope’s disappearance sets a community in motion. She’s one of their own. They determine to find Hope, whatever the cost, before she’s lost forever.

Will you?

My Take:  This is a fiction book that is based on what is really happening in the US.  As a mother of two girls this book spoke to my heart.  I have been hearing and reading alot about sex trafficking over the last year or so.  It is something that is not really spoken of much in America.  This happens in other countries not here in America. 
Wrong it happens here in America especially around big sporting events (the Super Bowl is a main event).  It happens to good girls who are told to believe the adults around them especially those in authority.  

This is not an easy book to read but it is an important book to read.  I would encourage parents who have girls of any age to read this book then if you feel lead to have your girls read the book.  This is a subject that we should not be sweeping under the carpet any more.  

I received a review copy of this book from Glass Roads  in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your platform with Hope today and bringing awareness to the issue of Human Sex Trafficking in America. It is evil, it is real, and it is happening all across our nation. It isn't an easy topic to discuss among adults, let alone with teens; however, it is vital that we breech the subject and educate them on the evil that lurks out there.
    Thank you, again, for shining a light on this issue.
