Somebody's Daughter Reviews
"The sex trade is the new drug trade," writes Sher, who draws attention to the 300,000 American minors trafficked and prostituted each year in his thorough, deeply affecting study." - Publishers Weekly
"Sher takes on the story of teen prostitution in the U.S. by primarily focusing on three cities, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Dallas....Sher clearly has a great deal of empathy for his interview subjects, and is at his most gripping when writing about their decisions to stand up against former pimps. He also writes in detail about the glamorized pimp image and how it has flooded pop culture." - Booklist
"Masterful, absorbing ... To date the most definitive account of sex trafficking of children in the United States and the culture that supports it." - Norma Ramos, executive director, Coalition Against Trafficking of Women
"Parents every day suffer the anxiety and sorrow of a daughter or son who has run away or is missing. There are few books as well written, insightful, and motivating as Somebody's Daughter. Julian Sher, in his extraordinarily masterful manner, has brought out the truth of this well-organized, underrecognized and continuously growing threat to children in America." - Dr. Sharon W. Cooper, consultant, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
"[A] powerful and compelling book ... as riveting and disturbing as this book is, it is also uplifting and hopeful. [Sher] showcases some modern-day heroes whose courageous efforts are rescuing kids and bringing those who prey upon them to justice. It is inspiring. We need more such heroes." - Ernie Allen, president & CEO, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
"Compulsively readable account . . . that elevates a collection of horrifying statistics into a cinematic, fully dimensional story." - Bust
