    One thought on “The Sacred Bath: An American Teen's Story of Modern Day Slavery”

    1. The worst thing about this book is that I didn't believe the writer. I kept having the feeling she was telling herself the story and trying to convince all of us it's true. The real story is probably far more murky and tragic.

    2. This is a tough book to review. The subject matter is important, but the author/survivor is no writer. The book is riddled with misspellings and poor grammar, and it’s not organized well…like to the point where it’s difficult to concentrate on her story. I get the feeling that maybe this was self-published. A friend recommended the book The Slave Across The Street, by Theresa Flores, but my library had The Sacred Bath by the same author, and reading the summaries, they appeared to be the s [...]

    3. I'm not really sure what to think about this book. I don't want to say this is a lie but at the same time I have a hard time believing this could really happen.All I can say is read it and decide for yourself.youtu/tFJ-67FNB5g

    4. My church is having a summit on human trafficking (in our own "backyard") soonI read this book when I got in bed the other night and didn't stop until I was finished. This subject is something that is so appalling to me.n slavery in modern times. It just doesn't seem possible, does it? At least, it doesn't to me living in white-bread middle America.The author's home being in Detroit (yes, Detroit) is one of the things that shocked me. It makes me so sad to think about where in the hell her paren [...]

    5. Wow. This story tells about a woman who was forced into sexual slavery in America for two years before able to escape her horrors. She is very open and gives some details about what she goes through and the tactics that were used on her that scared her as she feared for her family's life. She also tries to encourage parents, teachers, etc. to be willing to help and be a part of your child's life in case this is happening to them (because her parents had no idea). It was a very sad book but she n [...]

    6. Here's the deal with this book. I wanted to give it 1 star as I did NOT like it. It's haunting and horrible. But I gave it 3 stars as I think everyone SHOULD read this to see how sex slavery is happening in our own neighborhoods and schools in the USA. Haunting and horrid. but nevertheless, needs to be addressed.

    7. WOW. This book was an eyeopener. The story is just amazingly sad. With two girls of my own it is just craziness. It was a very fast read, with only 125 pages. I finished this book in a few hours. The biggest thing is the typos. My goodness she must not have had a good editor because there are just so many.

    8. It was kind of hard to read and I actually have a high tolerance for this kind of stuff since I work in the legal system. I also live in the same county that this happened in. Chaldeans are a very close knit group and keep to themselves but i have also been to clubs in the area where the men are very aggressive in trying to persue women. But not all Chaldeans are bad.

    9. I feel this is a good book, this author inspired me to write about my horrible past, that I've been hiding and ashamed of for so many years. and I believe what she said cuz 23 years ago I went through somethings like this yes it does happen it's a hellish nightmare

    10. This book was really bad. Not just the content, which I found incredibly hard to believe because it was too convenient how everything happened and played out, but because of the editing OR rather lack thereof. The grammar and writing was just terrible and the use of caps and exclamation points were atrocious. Do not read at all, there are better books on this subject out there.
