My Review:

It is really important to remember that so many people are used as things and not as people. This book reminded me that there are bad people out there, and they are willing to entertain themselves at the cost of others. Olivia was in a dark place and there was danger all around her. She had made her decision to live in that environment, but what about her sister Rachel? Rachel was only 18 and she wanted to find out what happened to her sister. She does not realize how dark Olivia's world really was, until her life was up for bid. I am not so sure that Rachel was ready for the truth, but she better find a way out safely and fast. As I got to the end of the book I really wanted the bad guys to be brought to justice. But what do you do when there are so many bad guys? I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
