The Slave Across the Street : The Harrowing True Story of How a 15-year-old Girl Became a Sex Slave Paperback
It could happen to you. It happened to the girl next door. When Theresa was 15 she moved to a new school and fell for an older pupil, Daniel.
Theresa was thrilled when one afternoon he asked if he could drive her home.
But this simple decision would hold her captive as a sex slave for two long years.
Daniel was part of a criminal ring that bribed and trafficked Theresa out of her own house, unknown to her parents.
Theresa would go to school alongside these boys in the day and be called into service at night.
Heart-rending, shocking and totally gripping The Slave Across the Street is the incredible true story of how an ordinary girl was lured into the sinister world of human trafficking - and how she eventually escaped and rebuilt her life.

Review by sscarllet
I was so unhappy with this book. I thought that it would be eye opening and informing, instead it was just poorly written and lacked credibility. <br/><br/>I found Flores writing to be extremely redundant. Perhaps the book would have been better served as a novelette, and not 300 odd pages long. <br/><br/><spoiler>I also don't think that some of the events could have actually happened. It seems unlikely that neither her parents or a cop wouldn't see that she had blood on her pjs after being abandoned in the hotel. </spoiler><br/><br/>I'm sure that something bad did happen to Flores for a prolonged period of time. It's just a pity that her writing was so very poor. It's quite amazing how she was able to overcome such terrible treatment and I feel that her spirit should be respected.
