Synopsis

He’d been her friend for years. He said he loved her. Then she realised she didn’t know him at all… When everything seemed to be falling apart in Sophie’s life, she was thankful for her friend Kas, who was always at the end of a phone, ready to listen and to offer comfort and advice.Her father’s cold dislike of her and then her parents’ divorce had left her with a deep distrust of men. But, gradually, Kas made her believe there was at least one man who truly cared about her. But she was wrong. At first when Sophie went to stay for a few days with Kas in Italy, he was kind and caring, as he’d always been. But three days after she arrived, everything changed. His eyes were cold as he described the things he expected her to do ‘for love’. But soon Sophie’s bewilderment turned to fear as he punched and shouted at her and threatened to kill her adored younger brothers if she didn’t do exactly as she was told…to sell her body on the streets to pay off Kas’s debts. Terrified of Kas, the police and the men whose pleasures she was forced to satisfy, Sophie worked seven nights a week for the next six months on the dark and lonely streets of a town in northern Italy. Subjected regularly to Kas’s verbal, mental and physical abuse, she knew she would never escape. And then, one day, after she’d been admitted to hospital with stomach pains – and knowing that Kas would kill her if he found out – she dared to phone her mother. But who would reach her first?

This is a terrifying account of a young girl who was trafficked in Europe. This is happening here in North America as well. All parents and young adults should read up on trafficking and the predators that commit these crimes

Although this book was at times shocking and I could not comprehend what Sophie must have gone through - I couldn't help feeling frustrated that she allowed herself to be treated like dirt. I get that she was brainwashed, terrified etc. but in this day and age of women's rights and heaps of media coverage regarding domestic violence this should never have happened. I was more angry about the fact that she was being beaten by Kas than I was that she was a prostitute.

Sophie
June 1st, 2013
How very emotional to read. What this courageous girl went through was terrifying and horrendous. While reading this book I felt a whole range of emotions from emotional and physical pain, anger, despair and sadness. I kept thinking "what would I do if this happened to my daughter", I wanted to yell at Sophie to run and escape at various points and to Kas (her captor) I wanted to give him a beating to match the vile beatings and emotional abuse he gave Sophie. He is one very mentally disturbed person. Sophie should be so very proud to have come this far and built a new future for herself. A definite must read for a whole other view of a world I didn't actually know much about!!

It was a book that managed to stir a lot of emotions while reading it. How brave and courageous she was to write a book about her experience. I pray for all the families that have had to endure such a horrific injustice.
