Publisher's Summary

The average age of entry into prostitution in America is 13-years-old. Forced into a life they never chose, manipulated, abused, and tortured at the hands of the pimps who control them, our country's children are sold on the streets, on the internet, and at truck stops across America every night. They aren't bad kids who made bad choices. They are victims of child sex trafficking. They come from our neighborhoods, our schools, our churches, and sometimes our own homes.
Author Linda Smith brings to life characters based on real stories and interviews with teen survivors. Meet "Lacy" and "Star" as they reveal the underbelly of our country s commercial sex trade. Get to know the men who sell them, and the ones who buy them. Let Renting Lacy draw you into the lives of these young girls as they struggle to survive each night, watching their childhood hopes and dreams slip away in the darkness. Let it compel you to action.

Distressing Reality...

though this is a fictionalized account, it is taken from hundreds of interviews with real children living through the hell of underground sex trades that function everywhere--and probably closer than you think. A real eye opener and a call to action.

This book truly gives insight to the lives of America's prostituted children

This book gives people of any level of knowledge of sex trafficking an understanding of some of the mental, physical, and emotional abuse that young sex trafficked girls go through daily. I literally cried, because of all of the, "what ifs" that could and should have been the reality of the lives of those girls. It's hard, but sometimes you need to know the hard stuff in order to put forth the right actions to truly help the children.
