After reading this novel, I may never let my girl out of my sight again! All joking aside, this is a compelling story about a real-life issue that's far too prevalent in our world today and the impact it has on teenage girls. Margaret Daley infuses heart-wrenching suspense with hope and new beginnings in this opening book of her new series. A host of great characters inhabit this story, and their flaws only make them more likeable and credible. . . except for the "bad guys," that is! (Daley deftly places one of the perpetrators in plain sight throughout the story, making the reader want to crawl through the pages to warn the others that he is not who he appears to be.) Of course, what's not to like about a strong and handsome Texas Ranger who won't rest until he hunts down those responsible for exploiting the girls?! And every teenage girl should have a Kate Winslow in her life - someone who will believe in her, listen to her, and stand up for her and to her! I was caught up in this story from the first page until the ending, and I eagerly await the October release of the second book, Shattered Silence.
