Publisher's Summary

During her teens, Rachel Lloyd ended up a victim of commercial sexual exploitation. With time, through incredible resilience, and with the help of a local church community, she finally broke free of her pimp and her past and devoted herself to helping other young girls escape "the life".
In Girls Like Us, Lloyd reveals the dark world of commercial sex trafficking in cinematic detail and tells the story of her groundbreaking nonprofit organization: GEMS, Girls Educational and Mentoring Services. With great humanity, she shares the stories of the girls whose lives GEMS has helped - small victories that have healed her wounds and made her whole. Revelatory, authentic, and brave, Girls Like Us is an unforgettable memoir.

Eye Opening Self Reflection

Even though I am not a survivor of commerial trafficking, I am a survivor of rape and domestic violence. There were so many time throughout this book I thought "OMG, this is just for me!"..."How did she know?"
I am grateful to know I am not alone in my struggles and triumphs.

Beautifully written and read

I am so glad I bought this book on Audible and listened to Rachel read it in her own words and in her own way. Beautifully written and narrated. As someone who works to rescue girls from sexual exploitation, this book tells the story best and explains a tragic subject in a smart and understandable way.
