    1. Captives is one of those books that gets under your skin. You know the kind of book I'm talking about: you can't stop thinking about it in between reads. When you're finished, you're left missing the characters. The book is told from three perspectives: the sister of a missing girl, a former sex-slavery victim who helps with the search for the missing girl, and a sex addict who lives in the neighborhood where the missing girl is found. (She's found early in the story, so that isn't giving anythi [...]


    2. Hello readers, I had been thinking about writing a novel involving sex trafficking since 2002, but in 2006 I finally got started. When I wrote the original version of this book, the term "sex trafficking" was just beginning to pop up within national news stories. Nowadays, most everyone has heard the term and many have been directly affected by the industry. I don't want to minimize the ugliness and brutality of this trade in any way. My portrayal of Asha's and Amy's experiences is tame compared [...]


    3. Megan Whitson Lee has written a powerful book about addictions that will capture you from the first page. She writes about addictions that we don't like to think about in a way that offers hope. Lee has skillfully woven the story around the death of a teenager caught up in human trafficking. She handles a difficult subject in a tasteful way without diminishing the pain of those caught up in sexual addictions. This is a book you will not soon forget. The characters will stay with you long after y [...]


    4. "Captives" surprised me in several ways -- all of them good.I have always disliked a multiple-narrator approach, but Lee weaves the 3 perspectives smoothly and connects them in ways that are realistic and believable. No contrivances here!I had no idea this was a novel about human trafficking until I read the back cover, and when I did, my heart sank with the fear that this would be a dark, depressing novel that sensationalizes a very-real problem. There are "dark" moments; anything else in a nov [...]
