#BookReview of Little Peach by @peggy_kern


Little Peach
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary, Dark
About the Book: What do you do if you're in trouble?

When Michelle runs away from her drug-addicted mother, she has just enough money to make it to New York City, where she hopes to move in with a friend. But once she arrives at the bustling Port Authority, she is confronted with the terrifying truth: she is alone and out of options. 

Then she meets Devon, a good-looking, well-dressed guy who emerges from the crowd armed with a kind smile, a place for her to stay, and eyes that seem to understand exactly how she feels. 

But Devon is not what he seems to be, and soon Michelle finds herself engulfed in the world of child prostitution where he becomes her “Daddy” and she his “Little Peach.” It is a world of impossible choices, where the line between love and abuse, captor and savior, is blurred beyond recognition. 

This hauntingly vivid story illustrates the human spirit’s indomitable search for home, and one girl’s struggle to survive.

Do I Recommend this book? OMG Yes!

Notes and Opinions: I can honestly say this book was so hard to read. I had to force myself to finish it all because of the subject matter. The worst part is that you know none of this book isn't really false. It is happen even today. It's scary and sad and it makes you angry. God, I just wanted to take Michelle away from that terrible world and just hug her. This book was heartbreaking but I think everyone needs to read it!
