Reviews
 One of the most absorbing, chilling, beautifully written and important novels I’ve read in many years’ Alice Walker, author of THE COLOUR PURPLE

‘Recommended by Oprah Winfrey, Brandon W Jones brings us a haunting debut that follows two teenage girls as they become innocent victims of the international sex trafficking trade.’ PRESS ASSOCIATION
