Publisher's Summary

Sex trafficking is currently a hot news topic, but it is not a new problem or just a problem in "other" countries. Every year, an estimated 80,000 American children are lured into the sex trade, some as young as eight years old. It is thought that up to 90 percent of victims are never rescued. Stolen is the true story of one survivor who escaped - more than once. First recruited while staying with her family at a hotel in Miami Beach, Katariina Rosenblatt was already a lonely and abused young girl who was yearning to be loved. She fell into the hands of a confident young woman who pretended friendship but slowly lured her into a child prostitution ring. For years afterward, a cycle of false friendship, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped. As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, listeners will quickly realize the frightening truth that these terrible things could have happened to any child - a neighbor, a niece, a friend, a sister, a daughter. But beyond that, they will see that there is real hope for the victims of sex trafficking. Stolen is more than a warning. It is a celebration of survival that will inspire.

Not a good book

This book is not very well written nor well narrated. It really was a waste of a credit

Christian faith based story of a survivor

Everything good that happens to the author, happens because of God. I was disappointed that there was so much about the author and all the good that she - a "female Moses" does along with her organization and, of course, God, and not enough detailed stories about actual experiences, except her own and that was just at the beginning of the book. The book soon starts sounding like a sermon. Not my cup of tea.

Meh

I was interested in reading a book about trafficking and ended up feeling like I was being ministered to. I take issue with people saying god saved them from trafficking as if their god just didn't care about all the other women who were trafficked. Not a terrible book but nothing special.

I've Never Hated A Book So Much...

I went into this book thinking it was about sex trafficking. In reality, it was a ploy to get you to read an entire book about Christianity. The hypocrisy of this book blew my mind and the only reason why I finished it was because I paid for it.
I don't know how someone gets trafficked and "saved" multiple times, because frankly, with any common sense, you'd think once would be enough... or twice, but nope. There's very little personal responsibility by this author, and at some point, when you continue to make poor choices and squander second, third, and fourth opportunities to start over, I start to lose respect for you, and have a hard time continuing to read on.
But the BEST part was by far when the author grows up, gets married, starts getting beat and controlled by her husband and then listens to people in the church who tell her its because she's not being a "submissive enough wife" based on the teachings of Christianity and she needs to try harder.

Seriously. For someone who supposedly has extensive levels of degrees and education, she's not very intelligent... and I can't believe she leads an organization that supports victims of trafficking. That in itself, is tragic.

This was a few hours of my life I'll never get back.

Honest and Thought Provoking

Dr Rosenblatt was forthcoming with even uncomfortable details in your to paint a picture of the harsh reality. Understanding that the hardest things to look upon are the ones we actually should be paying attention to, I'm saddened we as society have closed our eyes to this tragedy that is so widespread and devastating. Honest, poignant, and telling of the incredible ability of the human spirit to heal and how God never leaves you.

No Thanks!

The first half of the book is decent, but the second half is VERY heavily on Christianity! I wish I had researched this book more before I listened. I am not religious and this book feels judgy. I could not finish it. No thanks!

Shocking , Enlightening and Hopeful

It is shocking how easy for kids to fall prey to crafty sex traffickers. The sad thing is that in some cases we parents put our kids in danger when we don't pay attention to how we rise them.
I like that the story goes into details on pitfalls kids run into to end up in the sex trade. It also brings into light measures that can be taken to prevent and rescue these kids including faith based solutions.
The more we're aware of this and other issues like it there's hope that we can make a dent in rescuing and solving these problems.

Really poor

I have read trafficking stories before. This woman was not trafficked. Not by a long shot. She was just nearly taken advantage of a few times. Whilst i am glad she was not hurt, the book is totally false advertising. Not only this, but it was incredibly boring. And she went on and in and on about God and Jesus. It was more like going to church than reading a gritty survival story.

Moving & Inspirational

This book is emotional at times to hear the life story of a girl so young. But her journey is aspirational and inspiring. Highly recommended read!

Interesting

Was interesting at the start but then dragged out. She strongly believed in God which wasn't really for me. Interesting story and a bit of an eye opener to the trafficking world we all live in, great to see she has made something of herself
