Publisher Comments:

Izzy's mother works far away and leaves Izzy at home, alone with Rob the Slob. Angry at her mother and trying to deal with school, friends and the attentions of charismatic Cody Dillon, Izzy finds her life swirling out of control. Coerced into putting out to help Cody, Izzy finds she is one in a long line of girls ensnared in prostitution, with no way to escape. Believing that her mother will come for her, Izzy manages to fight back and, when the chance appears, make a run for it.

okai so this book was deff another one of mac's awsome writings. i loved it so much i didnt put it down till i was finished. I checked out this book and crush yesterday from the library and finished them both. i love the way that mac shows Izzy being fooled into loving Dillon and in the end she realizes that he is not coming back for her and she has been trapt in the life of prostitiution. in the end you actually feel the pain and betrayl that izzy feels and you almost cry when she gets back to her mom. Carrie Macs book make it so easy to get involved with the characters and you almost want to be apart of their lives. you want to find a way to help them through their times. reading the book makes you feel like you are in her position. it was awesome great work.

Hi i am a student who loves your books. My comment is not about this book because i have never read this book and was hoping to. I am hoping you would see this. Im a really big fan of the orca soundings books!. I have read 9 and would love to read them all. I seen that this add was giving away free book and i was hoping you would consider sending me a collection of the orca soundings for my own reading. I would love very much to read as many of these book as i can get ahold of. Thank you very much for reading my comment and keep up the good work with the orca soundings book i love them.
Thank you,
courtney

I think that this book is a good way of putting the 'not always so pretty' teenage life. The way that the author lets readers know that you can't always tell when you're being used is a great way to 'get the message through'. I like this book, and all of my friends suggested it to me.
