{{Book Review}} Stolen by Katariina Rosenblatt PhD with Cecil Murphy

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*
I don't usually read books like this(non-fiction), but I'm really glad I did. While I was never a victim of Trafficking...I can still relate.  Before reading this book I didn't know a lot about sex trafficking. In the past I've heard those words before, but never really knew about the whole "grooming" process and whatnot or that they lured males and not just females. I have been judgmental in the past and have said/thought "why didn't he/she just leave when they had the chance?" or "they shouldn't have gone with strangers". I know that even in the area that we live in now(DFW) there is a growing problem with human trafficking. I really think more people should read this book, esp if you have ever been a victim of abuse(of any kind). 

Katariina Rosenblatt, LLM, PhD, is living proof of the promise she heard long ago at a Billy Graham crusade that God would never forsake her. Katariina has a PhD in conflict analysis and resolution and an LLM graduate law degree in intercultural human rights, and she works closely with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and Homeland Security to eliminate human slavery. She also founded Stolen Ones--There Is H.O.P.E. For Me, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing other victims of human trafficking. For more information, She lives in Florida.

Cecil Murphey has written or coauthored more than 130 books, including the bestselling 90 Minutes in Heaven with Don Piper and the autobiography of Franklin Graham, Rebel with a Cause. He was a collaborator on the bestseller Gifted Hands with Dr. Ben Carson. Cecil resides in Georgia.
