2.0 out of 5 stars Just not sure on this, 27 Nov. 2013
This review is from: The Slave Across the Street: The harrowing true story of how a 15-year-old girl became a sex slave (Paperback)
I really don't know what to say about this book. I honestly can't believe that for 2 years her parents never heard her leave the house in the middle of the night, see her bruises, hear her in the bath in the night or wonder who called her phone line every night.
I'm not saying she made the whole thing up but some of it doesn't seem right. The first night she was raped and lost her viginity and the pictures were taken, how did she not see 2 people taking photos of her? And why would she try and get the photos back, anyone can re-print them from their camera so it made no sense to keep having sex with men for return of them.
Why no convictions? The boys went to school so they can be found easily enough even after years gone by. Why wouldn't you want to see them punished?
Why did the policeman do no more than take her home after finding her in a state and never interview her to find out more even though she alleges the policeman new what had happend to her?
I think the men took advantage of a young needy girl, craving affection she couldn't get from home. But a Sex Slave, I am not so sure.....
