This book was a great read. It follows the lives of two girls ( one rich, and the other poor) who are victims of human trafficing. I read this book two years ago but the entire story line stuck with me. I couldn't put the book down.

This book had alot of good writing, good characters that were very realistic, and settings that you could easily visualize.

The author always kept the feeling of anticipation high. But it never comes. Nothing really happens. Literally! It is just build up. None of the characters do any 'Dirty Work' or any work for that matter.

The entire story is about how two girls are taken away from their lives. Nothing ever happens to them. It's very sad but they just sit around in a room, and reflect on their lives and how they took advantage of what they had.

You will most likely finish feeling like you've wasted 2 or 3 hours.
