Publisher's Summary

Modern slavery is happening all around you...and you can be part of the solution.
Human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. Nor is it something that just happens to "other people", such as runaways or the disenfranchised. Even kids in your own neighborhood can fall victim. But they don't have to.
Through true stories and expertise from her many years of boots-on-the-ground experience, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches you everything you need to know about human trafficking in the United States - helping you identify risk factors, take practical steps to keep your loved ones and neighbors safe from predators, and recognize trafficking around you so that you can help fight it.

Excellent, Informative, Heartbreaking, Powerful.

Would you listen to In Our Backyard again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again because it was so valuable and educational regarding the horrific realities of modern day slavery; human trafficking.

What was one of the most memorable moments of In Our Backyard?

I would have to say the anecdotes that recounted the trials and horrors that various people have gone through being enslaved and human trafficking.

Which character – as performed by Nicol Zanzarella – was your favorite?

That is a difficult one to answer. I think it would have to be the narrator as a whole, not really a specific character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A devastating glimpse into the horrifying reality of modern day slavery.

Any additional comments?

I would highly recommend this book to anybody interested in 1. learning more about this terrifying reality 2. getting involved in its abolishment.

Great job to the author. She is one of my heroes.

learned a lot

the book started to get quite repetitive. the author did not go into graphic details on the stories presented. I think the devil in those details could have made an impact.
