Welcome to day twenty of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.
Today's letter is "T" and my topic is = TRAFFICKING.
My friend Keegan is going to guest post and tell you a little about it. 


Hi I’m Keegan Shayne from Blabbing Books. I am a South African Book Blogger and I feel so privileged to be doing a guest post on Amy’s fabulous blog! She has been a mentor to me and I have so much to be grateful for, all thanks to her; she is truly an inspiration to me!

Today I will be doing a post on Trafficking:
TRAFFICKING:
traf-fic-king
Deal or trade in something illegal.

In other words Trafficking can have anything to do with things such as people and drugs. What disgusts me, with in regards to Human Trafficking is the fact that this could consist of cutting people and selling their organs or even selling the actual people. This ladies and gentlemen is part of the sick and twisted world that we find ourselves living in today.


Trafficked by Kim Purcell is a book that I cannot wait to read and is definitely on my to be read pile. If you are like me and would like to found out more about Trafficking then I suggest you read this book. As a YA blogger I am intrigued to be able to have the opportunity to read such an insightful book that tackles such dark matters and does not shy away from such topics because it is part of the learning experience. I can only hope that this book will be extremely raw and much to my liking. 

A 17-year-old Moldovan girl whose parents have been killed is brought to the United States to work as a slave for a family in Los Angeles. Hannah believes she’s being brought from Moldova to Los Angeles to become a nanny for a Russian family. But her American dream quickly spirals into a nightmare. The Platonovs force Hannah to work sixteen-hour days, won’t let her leave the house, and seem to have a lot of secrets—from Hannah and from each other.Stranded in a foreign land with false documents, no money, and nobody who can help her, Hannah must find a way to save herself from her new status as a modern-day slave or risk losing the one thing she has left: her life.



Thank you so much for having me, Amy!

Thanks for your comments everyone!

I think Keegan is a super Book Blogger. I think he did a great job on this guest post as well. I admire him as much as he looks up to me.

I actually just read the book TRAFFICKED because of this guest post and I will be posting my review in a couple of days. Please be looking for it. Keegan did a great job in describing the novel. It is a very sad and heartbreaking topic although very real and it is something that happens every day.
