Today, two cultural forces are converging to make America's youth easy targets for sex traffickers. Younger and younger girls are engaging in adult sexual attitudes and practices, and the pressure to conform means thousands have little self-worth and are vulnerable to exploitation. At the same time, thanks to social media, texting, and chatting services, predators are able to ferret out their victims more easily than ever before. In Walking Prey, advocate and former victim Holly Austin Smith shows how middle class suburban communities are fast becoming the new epicenter of sex trafficking in America. Smith speaks from experience: Without consistent positive guidance or engagement, Holly was ripe for exploitation at age fourteen. A chance encounter with an older man led her to run away from home, and she soon found herself on the streets of Atlantic City. Her experience led her, two decades later, to become one of the foremost advocates for trafficking victims. Smith argues that these young women should be treated as victims by law enforcement, but that too often the criminal justice system lacks the resources and training to prevent the vicious cycle of prostitution. This is a clarion call to take a sharp look at one of the most striking human rights abuses, and one that is going on in our own backyard.

In this riveting book, authors and authorities on modern day slavery Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter expose the disturbing phenomenon of human trafficking and slavery that exists now in the United States. In The Slave Next Door we find that slaves are all around us, hidden in plain sight: the dishwasher in the kitchen of the neighborhood restaurant, the kids on the corner selling cheap trinkets, the man sweeping the floor of the local department store. In these pages we also meet some unexpected slaveholders, such as a 27-year old middle-class Texas housewife who is currently serving a life sentence for offences including slavery. Weaving together a wealth of voices—from slaves, slaveholders, and traffickers as well as from experts, counselors, law enforcement officers, rescue and support groups, and others—this book is also a call to action, telling what we, as private citizens, can do to finally bring an end to this horrific crime.

From the Author: This is a true story based on my life experience. It is not just another survivor’s story; it is the story of a journey to spiritual growth. After being abducted as a child and exploited through the underground world of human trafficking, I wanted to know why God loved all the children in the world but me. This is a testimony about a girl with hopes and dreams; who loved the Lord and loved life. Then one day her hopes and dreams were gone. She was lost and turned out. Dead to the world - will she ever recover? Is there a way out? This is the cold hard reality of human trafficking. It is not a book about statistical theory; it is the raw uncut survival story of a child of the night. It is the raw reality of my experiences overcoming the world of human trafficking. Some of the language is raw too. I changed most of it because I no longer speak that way; it was, however, the language of my world. Anyone who reads this book will benefit and be changed forever. There are 20 years of personal research in this book. What you know about this way of life is simply a myth. Layers and layers of a life style that has been misinterpreted for centuries will be unveiled. We will lay the myths to rest for this book is based on my life experience.
