This is such a difficult book to review because I feel like nothing I say is going to do it justice. I’m going to keep this short, because I don’t think I need to ramble on about unimportant things.
Little Peach is a powerful, horrifying, and heart breaking read that tells a story of child prostitution and human trafficking in the USA. It focuses on one girl in particular, Michelle, after she runs away from home and ends up in NYC, but there is also a small cast of other characters.
The story is absolutely incredible, despite being extremely disturbing, because it sheds a lot of light on things that many people, Americans included, like to cover up. People like to pretend that child prostitution and human trafficking isn’t a thing that happens in the good ol’ US of A. They pretend they’re things that happen in third world countries, far removed from their white picket fences. But Peggy Kern is challenging that with Little Peach and bringing it to the light.
I would 100% recommend reading Little Peach, even though it’s going to be a difficult read for many, many people. I think it’s important to raise awareness and to open eyes to the things that are happening so close to your own doorsteps.
