Written by a child sex trafficking survivor who is now a trained professional in the field - a rising star who will likely be a national presence in the growing cause to prevent child sex trafficking.This is NOT a memoir; rather, the author uses her story to help the reader understand how someone ends up in trafficking -- usually because of childhood trauma/abuse, etc. Author was recently appointed as the very first City of Phoenix (Arizona) Survivor Spokesperson for Child Sex Trafficking Prevention and she's won numerous awards for her efforts in prevention and advocacy.Child sex trafficking is a very hot topic nationally and internationally. Federal, state, and local governments are placing emphasis on research for prevention, identification and rehabilitation of victims.This book gets at the root causes of trafficking - what leads up to it - instead of focusing on a survivor story or how to help those already in it. The focus is to help adults--parents, coaches, teachers, counselors, or even someone at the grocery store-- recognize signs of abuse or vulnerability--and how to do something about it. How we can all intervene.Author is highly motivated to promote this book at her many speaking engagements.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...Her passion for ending sex trafficking and the exploitation of children have earned my respect and admiration. Savannah Sanders has been and will continue to be a powerful voice for policy and social change. I am pleased to be in a position to recommend her new book to you, and know that you will find that it is written in an easy and accessible format making the concepts and call to action clear and possible." Robert Rhoton, Psy.D.; LPC; D.A.A.E.T.S.Diplomate of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress; Vice President, International Association of Trauma Professionals; Co-editor of the International Journal of Trauma Practice and Research; CEO of Arizona Trauma Institute & Therapy"As a survivor and social worker, Savannah Sanders is a leading expert on the topic of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC). Her book, Sex Trafficking Prevention, will be a great contribution to the anti-trafficking field. We are lucky to have such access to her insight and expertise. I am so proud to know her both professionally and personally." Holly Austin Smith, Author, Walking Prey"When we violate the sacred boundaries of childhood by sexualizing, raping or abusing our children we set them on a course vulnerable to the prey of unscrupulous pimps and johns. The FBI estimates that over 100,000 children and young women are trafficked in America today. They range in age from nine to nineteen, with the average being age thirteen. This glimpse into Savannah Sander's heroic story can help raise awareness, break-down barriers to reality and inform parents, police, educators and the legal system regarding how to protect our children from sex trafficking." Lynne Kenney, PsyD Pediatric Psychologist. Co-author, BLOOM: 50 Things to Say, Think and Do with Anxious, Angry, Over-the-Top Kids"Would you know how to recognize a child that is vulnerable to sex trafficking? Would you know what to do if you did? Sex trafficking of children is not the purview of third world nations nor is it something that happened in the past before technology was available to track predators. It's happening today your city . . . in your community . . . every single day. That is one of the key messages imparted in Sex Trafficking Prevention, a powerful new book by survivor and prevention advocate, Savannah Sanders. By sharing her story Savannah opens our eyes to the world of childhood abuse and trauma that diminishes a child's feelings of self-worth, so much so that saying no and escaping the victimization become impossibilities. But this is not inevitable. We can do something to help at risk children. That is Savannah's other message. And through her book, she teaches us how. " Stefanie Zucker, child health and safety advocate, Managing Director of Pediatric Safety at pediatricsafety(dot)net"This book is written with the same honesty and strength with which Savannah lives her life. Her ground-breaking book serves to remind us all that sex trafficking is a multi-faceted issue. Savannah bravely shares her experiences to educate readers about the link between sex trafficking, child abuse and domestic violence. Every advocate for child abuse and domestic violence must read this book. And every person who cares about others should read this book, and become a part of the solution through learning and being able to recognize the signs. Savannah's insight and advice throughout this book will no doubt save lives if readers are brave enough to utilize her wisdom and speak out. As a fellow advocate for victims, I feel confident we are making change with a woman like Savannah on our side!
