Stolen: The True Story of a Sex Trafficking Survivor by Katariina Rosenblatt, PhD with Cecil Murphey

About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
There is hope, even on the darkest of days.

Katariina Rosenblatt was a lonely and abused young girl, yearning to be loved, wanting attention. That made her the perfect target. On an ordinary day, she met a confident young woman – someone Kat wished she could be like – who pretended to be a friend while slowly luring her into a child trafficking ring. A cycle of false friendships, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped.

As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, her ultimate escape, and her passionate efforts to now free other victims, you'll see that not only is sex trafficking happening frighteningly close to home – it’s also something that can be stopped. Stolen is a warning, a celebration of survival, and a beacon of hope that will inspire you.

Stolen by Katariina Rosenblatt, with Cecil Murphey, is the story of an abuse-filled past, including sex trafficking and domestic violence, and subsequent hope-filled escape and recovery. Rosenblatt presents her story vulnerably and bravely and as I read, I ached for the child she was and then cheered for the woman she gradually became. Her experiences speak of a very real, near-than-you-think problem, and in sharing these experiences, Rosenblatt makes great strides in increasing awareness of that problem. Stolen is eye-opening, astonishing and powerful and I highly recommend it. It is definitely worth a read.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Stolen and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
