Capturing Jasmina by Kimberly Rae

Ten-year-old Jasmina and her brother are sold into slavery by their father. Jasmina manages to escape only to be captured again by another human trafficker. When she runs away, she ends up on the street until she spots a group of women who don’t seem like they belong and Jasmina’s curiosity pushes her to follow them.

I read Capturing Jasmina very quickly because I could barely put it down (and it is pretty short). I was invested in the character of Jasmina and really cared about what happened to her. Because it is aimed at a younger audience, it treats sex trafficking and prostitution delicately and in a very age-appropriate way. I highly recommend this book to teens.
