      This is one of the best books that I've read this year. If you have a teenage daughter with a cellphone, this is a must read. I've read all of Ms. Young's novels and this is the greatest. She sheds light on a subject that everyone needs to be aware of, especially parents.

      I hadn’t planned on reading “Anybody’s Daughter” just yet because I am currently reading “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. However, I made the mistake of reading the sample on and that was all she wrote, no pun intended. I was immediately drawn in. The next thing I knew I was downloading the book onto my iPhone. That was late in the afternoon yesterday. I finished the book today. Needless to say it blew me away. I couldn’t put the book down. Pamela opens the story with a powerful punc [...]

      Phenomenal story about human trafficking! This story was powerful, fast paced and real. The author painted a very vivid picture of what is happening to young girls all over the country. This is a story that will stay with me forever.

      I LOVED THIS BOOK SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH. BEING BORN AND RAISED IN LOS ANGELES AND KNOWING ALL THE STREETS THAT WERE MENTIONED MADE IT THAT MUCH MORE REAL FOR ME. I CRIED AT THE END AND AS I READ THE AUTHOR'S NOTES. I REALLY SAT THERE AND CRIED. THANK GOD BRI HAD AN UNCLE LIKE DRE. THANK GOD PEOPLE CARED AND LOOKED FOR HER. SO MANY GIRLS GO MISSING AND NOBODY GIVES A DAMNMADE ME THINK OF MY DAUGHTERSHE'S ONLY 5 AND I KNOW THAT I CAN'T SHIELD HER FROM EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE AS SHE GETS OLDER BUT [...]

      What a story! I was crying in the first chapter. Although fiction, this issue is real and prevalent in our communities. Young's research was thorough and gritty. This book is NOT for the faint of heart. It was a heartwrenching story with a happy endingt a reality for the most part. I wish all endings involving human trafficking would come to a positive resolution. The writing was crisp and on point. She dealt with the street element realistically. The characters were believable to the point wher [...]

      True information written as a story about the lucrative paedophile sex trade in America (an Estimated 32 BILLION a year). Pimping children is common and profitable with the event of the internet. Predators of this low risk, high profit business manipulate and groom vulnerable children through Facebook and other social media. Even if a pimp is caught they rarely do time. The average age for a child to enter the sex trade in America is 12-14 years old! This book was an eye opener and a must read f [...]

    • Adrienne Thompson says:

      This book came highly recommended to me and for good reason. This heartbreaking, all-too-real tale of innocence lost and taken grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Relentless in its realness and alarming in its parallel to current events in this country, it is a must read for absolutely everyone. I dare you to read this book and walk away unaffected. I applaud the author for delving into such heavy subject matter and for shedding light on atrocities shrouded in darkness. HIGHLY recommended read. Adri [...]

    • Harold Kasselman says:

      I would rate this 3.5This is a brutally honest and well told story about the hideous practice known as human trafficking. The dialogue is very believable and there are some twists and unexpected events that make for an exciting conclusion. My only reluctance was that there was a bit of repetitious material that could have been deleted and thereby made the book a more enjoyable read. Still, kudos to the author for a skillful presentation of a social problem that needs to be a priority in our lega [...]

    • Cheris Hodges says:

      This is the kind of book that blurs the lines between fiction and reality. There are plenty of little girls being sexually exploited in this country and Brianna Walker's story -- though fictional —could be happening right next door. Paula did an amazing job telling this story and showing the world that these girls are victims and we have to protect them.

    • Tea Time with Marce says:

      From my blog4 1/2Pamela Samuels Young has became an author I must read when she releases something new. I was even more excited to find this was a follow up to her book Buying Time, we get to have more from characters Angela and Dre in book 2 of the Angela Evans series.A great heart wrenching race to the end while reading this action packed thriller. The bonus is we get statistics on child trafficking which makes the journey more frightening and real to read. Social media has put a whole new dan [...]

    • Jessie says:

      I just finished the last 7% of this book while sitting at my desk. I had originally given it five stars, but then I decided to bring it down one star. This story was wonderful and made me feel a lot of emotions. It also opened my eyes to a part of the world that I knew was out there but didn't really understand how it was done. The only reason this story lost one star from me is because I felt like the character development of some of the characters wasn't quite where it could've been. The main [...]

    • Suzanne DeVlieger says:

      Anybody's Daughter is riveting, mesmerizing and almost unbelievable.I read this book in one afternoon, I could not put it down. Of course I have seen the news reports, of course I have have been shocked, of course I have been repulsed, but until I read this book I had no idea of the grossly shocking details. Why, why, why aren't officials doing more? I really want to believe that race has nothing to do with the lack of action, but again all we have to do is watch the news to understand that race [...]

      OMG! AND I DO MEAN OMG! I just finished "Anybody's Daughter!" It was amazing! I intended to read it at a later date but I made a quick road trip and decided to listen to it instead! GREAT CHOICE! The narrator brought the characters, that Pamela Samuels Young created, to life in a major way! This book was so serious yet it was truly was amazing! Brianna,12, befriends Jaden,"14," on Facebook and decides to meet him face-to-face on her way to school. This secret meeting takes a turn for the worse a [...]

    • Jackie Roberts says:

      A real eye opener and reality check for parents of preteens and teenagers who frequent social media web sites. A story packed with a serious punch. A must read and purchase.

    • Nia Forrester says:

      Anybody's Daughter, the winner of the 2014 NAACP Image Award for Fiction is not the kind of book you look forward to reading. Even if you're a fan of suspense novels (which I generally speaking am not), the themes are difficult ones, the plot challenging. And that's just from reading the synopsis. But I decided to dive in anyway, because of the accolades it received. I'm glad I did. I thought I knew about child sex trafficking, having worked on the issue in my other non-writing life. But this bo [...]

      So enjoyableOne of my new favorite writers

    • Ashley Dawn says:

      Oh my gosh! This was an intense book. Dre is trying to get back with his ex when he gets a phone call that his niece is missing. Dre has always considered Brianna like his own and will do whatever he has to, to get her back. He has help in his search to find her but the Shepherd is a powerful player and he is who has Brianna. Human trafficing is a big deal and makes a lot of money so the Shepherd sees no reason this little 'nucance' should cause problems but he doesn't know just how much Dre is [...]

    • Adrienna says:

      The title itself alerts readers and the storyline alone deserves high esteem and great praise since it can be "anyone's daughter" who can get caught up or involved in human trafficking. Pamela S. Young takes on a story that needs to be told and shared, since so many of us are blinded or only take it in consideration with movies like "Taken." However, this novel closely reminds me of the movie "Taken" from an urban perspective.This book is a bit difficult for me to read like when I watched movies [...]

    • Doris H. says:

      WARNING: IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO READ THIS NOVEL, DON'T PICK IT UP. If you do, you will miss whatever scheduled appointments you've made because you will not put this book down. This is the exemplification of a page turned that holds you until the last word is read and you take an audible deep breath. The dichotomy here is that this is FICTION, BUT the characters are real, the plot is real, and the story, unfortunately, is real. You move in and out of turmoil with each character. You cry with [...]

    • Barbara says:

      Wow, this story was so real! Everyone needs to read this book. Anybody’s Daughter is a well written story about teenage sex trafficking. As parents we try to protect our children from the unknown, but they find ways to deceive us.Brianna is a 13-year old girl living with her mother. Brianna’s Uncle Dre gave her an I-phone as a gift and the trouble begins. She created a Face book account unknown to her mother and meets a boy named Jaden on line.

      OMG! Before you begin reading this book, make sure you have a box of tissues handy. You're going to need it. It is a very emotional read. Anybody's Daughter kept me on the edge of my seat. The more I read, the more I felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest. All I could do was think that what if this had been my Goddaughter, niece or little cousin that had been kidnapped. The raw emotions of Brianna's uncle were so real. Dee wasn't going to stop until he had Brianna safely home. At o [...]

    • Lindsey Smith says:

      The book Anybody's Daughter is about a 13 year old girl named Brianna who has been kidnapped and is brought into a world of human sex trafficking. This book has made me learn new things about the world. I've learned that you should not believe in anyone you don't know on social media. Many girls in the world are getting more and more involved in this. This book has taught me to be more careful when I'm on any social media.

    • Charlotte Lewis says:

      This was a great real life story about sex trafficking of minor children. As a social work administrator I see first hand the effects of these horrific crimes against children thank goodness the laws are now protecting children by decriminalizing children's roles in this profession. Great job Pamala Samuels Young who is now my favorite author. Another great story

    • Rochelle says:

      A real look into human sex trafficking. Too real in some places, I cringed to think I might have to read something graphic but this is how it really is. And much worse. Kudos to the author for taking us right to the ledge and for reeling it in for the faint of heart. The epidemic is real, the characters were believable, and the writing overall was stellar.

    • Marc Medley says:

      Excellent, Informative and Eye Opening ReadThis book was well written and while fiction is very real. The scenarios are chilling to think that our children suffer from such atrocities. I have four daughters and kept picturing this happening to one of them. Dre was calm considering. Kudos for bringing our attention to an often overlooked topic.

    • Dee Cherry says:

      The 2nd book in this series reunited Dre & Angela as a devastating act occurred. This was such an eye opening story with an inside view on what occurs with human trafficking. Such a sad situation, mentally & physically for the victims & their loved ones. I thought this book was well written as I could envision these scenes while reading. Dre's determination kept the pages turning as his actions were realistic & believable. Very good read
