Julian Sher's book on child prostitution

I haven't read this book, but it's been getting good reviews. Below is the blurb and link. Thanks to Michael Davidson for sharing the link!


SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER:

The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children
and the Battle to Save Them

They are America's forgotten children: the hundreds of thousands of child prostitutes who walk the "tracks" -- the Las Vegas Strip, the casinos of Atlantic City, the truck stops on interstates and the street corners of our cities. Most people wrongly believe sex trafficking involves young women from foreign lands but the vast majority of teens caught in the sex trade are American girls -- the runaways and the throwaways few people care about. They become victims of ruthless pimps whose lifestyle is often glorified in the media and in the rap music scene.

From the streets of Dallas where the police have set up a pioneering High Risk Victims Unit to the glittering casinos of Las Vegas and Atlantic City where the FBI's "Innocence Lost" investigators try to dismantle major pimping criminal enterprises, Somebody's Daughter takes you behind the scenes to expose one of America's most under-reported crimes: the trafficking of American girls on American streets.
