This book helps educate others about a pimp, familial, and gang trafficking. It is filled with survivor stories as well as my own story of trafficking. Each story has a purpose and that is to help others, especially trafficked girls, understand what happened to them when they were trafficked. This book will help break that trauma bond as well as facilitate the healing process. This book is for sex trafficking survivors, advocates, counselors, and anyone else who wants to learn more about trafficking and what the healing process looks like for complex trauma. I believe that if each girl understood how they were forced, coerced, or manipulated into trafficking that they could break the trauma bond that was formed with their trafficker and reduce the recidivism rate of being re-exploited.
