It took me a while to begin reading this book, even though I love reading Katrina Kittles work. The reason is that I knew this was a book about child pornography and incest.
Once I started though, I could not put it down. I read the book in two days, desperately hoping Jordan's parents would be caught and sent to jail, praying Jordan would finally feel safe and secure in his new home. Yet I knew this was fiction. That is the power of good story telling and Katrina Kittle is a master of characterization. Her story people do not feel like characters, they feel very real.
This is a story that may stick with you long after you have reached the final page. ( )

This book will probably go down as my top read of 2017! This was so well-written and so believable. Although at times it is painful to read, the actions of Jordan so realistic. I would recommend this to anyone not put off by the subject matter. ( )

The subject matter of this book (incest, child sexual abuse, suicide, and the death of loved ones) makes this book something that isn't for everyone. Kittle's characters mostly ring true, though the angry teen who so quickly morphs into the compliant, civic minded young man was a bit of a stretch. Her insight into the warped thinking of an abused child was provocative and sad. ( )

Another book (3rd one) I loved reading by this author. Although the subjects of child sexual abuse/incest and child pornography are sensitive and difficult, Katrina told this story with her usual compassion and grace. The characters are endearing, and the story is both heart wrenching and heartwarming. ( )

Definitely not for every teen. But this amazing novel shows how healing kindness can save families, and how families can be made up of strangers with a commitment to care for one another. Much graphic content regarding child abuse and sexual slavery. Written for adults, but there are some teens who would enjoy this read.
