One Among Us by Paige Dearth

One Among UsOne Among Us by Paige Dearth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Graphic, disturbing, emotional, awe inspiring story once again from Paige Dearth.

I had read a previous book by this author so I kinda knew how she wrote. I do find when she is using narratives that she comes over a bit lack of emotional description, but apart from that I found this book much better than her last one I read.

I need to explain that its graphic, its about children/trafficking/abuse, so expect a complete truth and no fussing about.

This author has experience first hand in that horrible area of life, for some they may find it hard to read, so be warned. Anything that is like this is hard to read, but, its FACTS its what goes on, its real life, and the more people are aware of this the more signs we can see where we can protect our children.

Although this is fiction, its a hard handed, hard banded realism story.

Thanks for AuthorBuzz via Net Galley for this book

Eleven-year-old Maggie Clarke is an average suburban girl known for her intelligence and beauty. Suddenly, her life’s path is tragically altered when Maggie is ripped from her family and thrust into the horrific underworld of human sex trafficking. In captivity, Maggie watches over a young boy, who gives her a reason to live. Robbed of her innocence and freedom, Maggie does whatever it takes to survive.

With the help of Detective Rae Harker, the Clarkes’ frantically search for their daughter. Haunted by his own demons, Detective Harker vows to find Maggie—dead or alive. Meanwhile on the vile streets of Philadelphia, a strange man approaches Maggie with a dangerous proposition, and she risks everything to break free of the network of unsavory characters that control her. Not even she can know how far she will go to get even with the people who ruined her life.

Raw, edgy, and intense, One Among Us ultimately offers hope through Maggie, who grows stronger and more resourceful through her experiences. You’ll be on the edge of your seat, rooting for Maggie as she fights for her life
