This short book is the second in a series and continued Jasmina's story from Capturing Jasmina. I'd recommend reading the series in order so you'll better understand Jasmina's past and her current relationships.
In the first story she understood what prostitution meant enough to risk serious injury to escape before she was trapped. Then she helped rescue several women from prostitution. It seemed odd how naive she was in this book as to why the lustful looks of men made her uncomfortable or why pretty girls were being lured in by her brother.
Through Jasmina's story, we learn more ways that people are lured in and human trafficked in India (and elsewhere). Parts of the story were exciting, but Jasmina was more passive than usual while she figured out what was going on with the "modelling" business. I'd expected this to be more about Samir's story, but it's not. It's Jasmina coming to terms with how human trafficking has destroyed her family.
I think this series is a good way to introduce teens to other cultures and important issues. Overall, I'd recommend this novella.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
