Almost too real

This book is difficult to listen to but even more difficult to stop. Amazing, realistic and gritty story of a girl pulled into an underage sex trafficking business and the struggle to find her. The amount of detail about the business and the frustrating laws regarding it are mind blowing and well researched.

The narrator was amazing and had a believable voice for every single character, whether they were male or female, Latina or African-American, frantic or insolent. Soooo well done.

Though there is plenty of violence and strong/sexual language, the author has a knack for perfect realism without using overly graphic details or excessively vulgar language merely for shock value. It's a gritty story but realistic and believable in every way. I would read it again, but only after I've recovered emotionally just a little. ;-)

Diffucult to listen to because of the topic

Listening to Anybody's Daughter is painful and infuriating. It is pain that need to be felt and anger that is necessary to stir action. This novel is about sex trafficking of early teen and preteen girls. The primary responsibility of adults is to protect children. Many of the adults in Anybody's Daughter are ruining the lives of children to make a profit. The pedaphiles that are the customers are as bad as the people that are involved in the sex trade of young girls.

This is Book 2 in the Angela Evans series. I have not listened to the prior book, but will soon. Angela Evans is a young black lawyer in the Los Angeles area. The book is well written. Narrator RC Bray is among the best and he does a great job.

Social Awareness is required to stop human trafficking!

This is a great book to bring social awareness and education to the very real and horrifying topic in the USA and world wide, human trafficking. The only way for our nation to bring a stop to the human trafficking and sexual exploitation of our children is to make everyone aware of the problem. And demand our lawmakers create actual punishments that are not just a slap on the hand. Please consider being part of the solution to this horrific problem in our era. Pamela Samuels Young provides a list of websites to visit for more information and consider supporting. It is going to take help from everyone to eradicate human trafficking. And it’s all too true, any child in your very own family can be the next victim of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

The story is very good and the narration is superb.

Great Listen

I absolutely loved this book and really loved the narrator - I've found the only thing wrong with listening to books instead of reading them is the narrator. Often the person reading the book is a big turn off but this bloke is fantastic and the only thing wrong I could say about this book is the hours I lost in sleep as I couldn't turn it off.

Young and Bray make a great pair.

I don't know which one is better the story teller or the story writer, both are geniuses in there own right. I hope there's a book 3. Angela Evans series is a hit. This reminds me of J.D.Robb Death series with the touch of romance and mystery.
