A shocking look at human sex trafficking as three underaged girls are routinely battered and abused by a ruthless pimp named Bullet, who refers to the minors he exploits as his “candy.”
Routinely battered, emotionally manipulated, three underaged girls are victims of human trafficking. They’ve been brainwashed into accepting sexual servitude as their hopeless plight in life. But Saleema Sparks might be the woman to save them from this nightmare. Saleema has made it her life’s mission to provide a sanctuary for troubled teenage girls. But with dwindling personal funds, she may have to close the doors to her one-woman operation—Head Up—a safe haven for young women in crisis.
So when Portia, a member of Head Up, goes missing, Saleema does not accept that the troubled teen is simply a runaway. She is compelled to look for Portia, forcing an apathetic community to open their eyes and lend a hand in the search for the abducted teen. But can she help Portia and the other sex-trafficked girls break free from the malicious pimp who has abducted them? Determined to save three young lives, Saleema risks everything to get the girls out of the pimp’s murderous grasp.
Allison Hobbs offers a provocative look into the lives of three young girls who have been forced into sex slavery by a homicidal pimp, and the one woman who risks everything to try and save their lives. Stealing Candy by Allison Hobbs is a shocking novel about human sex trafficking.
