The Sunday Times top 10 best seller

A heartbreaking memoir from a girl who escaped county line trafficking only to become prey to other abusers.... 

Emily has always felt like an outsider, so when a family friend takes her under his wing she is delighted. But soon it becomes clear that his motives are not all they seem. At the age of 11, Emily is groomed into being a ‘county lines’ drug trafficker. It is the beginning of a vicious cycle that sees her become prey to one abuser after another, involving a huge child-sex-trafficking gang.

The scale of the abuse - at the hands of hundreds of men - is sickening, and at times it feels like there will never be an escape. But then, in the darkest of moments, a ray of light shines.... 

This is the moving true story of how one girl overcame her traumatic past and learned to love for the very first time.

Good book with a horrible story

I could not put the book down but felt terrible listening to this young girls story. I wish the writer a peaceful future life and to enjoy her own child. This book has truly opened my eyes to troubled children and adults, may be look to help than to offend with horrible comments. We live so close to wales and know of drug problems locally, but not aware of slavery (or are we??). Worth a read but you will never look at anyone the same after.
I would recommend this book to every bookclub as the more everyone understands, the more this can be talked about.

Disturbing and shocking

I only got half way through this book. The detailed stories of child sex abuse made me feel sick. Grown married men actually engaging in sex acts with underage girls is just vile and disgusting. This is a shocking story that no girl should go through, but unfortunately a majority of married, single adult men seeking out underage girls for their own sexual needs. Especially the Pakistani men as the story emphasis.These men need to be castrated and locked away, but never will as they keep getting away with it. Vile disgusting creatures.

Poor read

Story was very monotonous, and very boring hearing the same thing every chapter. On a plus note - the narrator was excellent.

misleading title

I found the title to be misleading as to be enslaved means to take away someone's freedom. I do not feel as if that is applicable for this story. Other than that I found this to be very detailed account of how impressionable young girls can be and how easily they can fall victim to the evils of adults. It is a very viscous cycle once you enter into the drug world of adults and these children really get pulled into the abyss of it all. It is already a difficult time in a young girls life . . . those preteen and teen years can be so awkward and hard to navigate and if even just 1 adult in your life wantsl to manipulate you - then it is very easy to fall prey to many after that.
Very sad story. I'm glad she is trying to work to make the world a safer place for children.
