STOLEN by Katariina Rosenblatt, PhD with Cecil Murphey

“Mom tried so hard to help me but I sank down deeper and deeper into the life of a troubled teen…
It was only a matter of time before another trafficker picked me up.”

Katriina (Kat) Rosenblatt share her personal story as a sex trafficking victim that begins with physical and verbal abuse by her father and babysitter. At age thirteen, Kat is befriended by nineteen-year- old Mary whom introduces her to sex trafficking and drugs that eventually leading Kat to teen clubs and gang life by age sixteen of her own volition. Further explained is how she came to know and accept Jesus Christ as the Savior who led her out of the troubled life that had a stronghold in her mind and body.

Stolen is a true story that Katriina Rosenblatt as she recounts steps leading to her involvement with sex trafficking but somehow I felt as though the words belonged to someone else with the events that take place seeming a bit out of order and jumbled. I could not connect any personal feelings with the book but reading how young people are lured into the business is worth the read for everyone.

I received this book free from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.
