Book Review: Stolen - A True Story of a Sex Trafficking Survivor by Katariina Rosenblatt and Cecil Murphey

Back Cover: 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: It is so easy to pretend we live in a world where horrible things can't happen to innocent children. Abuse is real and all around us. Stolen is a heart-breaking, yet hope-filled account of a sex trafficking survivor. While I think this book is an excellent read for church workers and parents, I would caution allowing children to read this book due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter. Reading this book opened my eyes to how easily children can be manipulated into a destructive lifestyle, especially those who have been abused. It strengthens my resolve to protect my son and pray for my nieces.

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I recommend this book to parents and church workers.
