THIS IS A MATURE NOVEL. I do not mean that lightly. I was inspired to write this novel through recent exposure to several true and horrifying stories of sexual abuse. Take my word for it-you will not find anything silly or light-humored in the following pages. Human trafficking is not a joke. This novel contains disturbing descriptions of violent sexual intercourse, resulting physiological chaos, and uncensored hate language. If you are under the age of seventeen, I strongly advise choosing another novel to read.

(The first three chapters contain no mature content)
