Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Powerful StorySeptember 9, 2016Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Priceless, by Joel and Luke Smallbone, is a novelization of the motion picture. James Stevens and his wife are on a weekend get away when they are involved in a traffic accident and his wife is killed. James is left alone to care for their daughter, Emmy, and is not handling life well at all. In just a short time he is being faced with bills he can not pay. In an effort to make the money he needs, he turns to dealing drugs and gets caught by the police. After being released from prison, his friend, who connected him with the drug dealer, buys him an old vehicle, gets him an apartment and a job. Emmy is living with his mother and he does not get to see her often. But to get his daughter back he has to have a proper home, income of $3000 a month and six times that in the bank for emergencies. So his friend hooks him up with a semi driving job, that turns out to be linked to sex trafficking. But James finds out what is really happening to Antonia and her sister Maria, he stays and does what needs to be done to save them.
This is a very good and very powerful story. The story is very realistic and shows what James would do to get Emmy back. The story is a sad story that also shows the compassion in James. Not everyone will enjoy this story, as human trafficking is a tragic topic. But the story is well written and I wanted to just keep reading it to see what James would do. The story is full of action and is suspenseful with a touch of romance.

beckieAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Priceless ReviewSeptember 8, 2016beckieAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Priceless: She's Worth Fighting For" is the novelization of the movie by the same name, written by Joel and Luke Smallbone. In this book, James becomes a widower and in the process of grieving he looses his home. In an effort to get back on his feet quick, James takes a job dealing drugs and get prison time on his first time out. While serving he looses custody of his daughter and in an effort to get enough money to get his daughter back he takes a job driving "cargo", which is criminal for humans. Now either James is incredibly unlucky or not real bright. Maybe both. He soon discovers his cargo is two women and falls for the older one. Maria and Antonia are sisters trying to make it in America. Somehow they get caught up with criminals with bad intentions. And their hero, James.
This book is a quick read, a bit frustrating at times. The bad or naive decisions get a little hard to watch. The book is written by a couple of brothers from the band for King & Country with Nancy Rue. Though they tell a good story it does seem that they are trying to tell too much at once. I would recommend this for a young adult reader. I received this book from Worthy Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
Mark5 Stars Out Of 5awesome, but sobering readSeptember 5, 2016MarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Although this book is an interesting read that is suspenseful and entertaining, it is also a sober look at the human trafficking issue through fiction, though the story is based on true events. Once I picked up the book and started reading it, I didn't want to put it down and read it in one day, though I had not originally intended to do so.
This book is based on a movie coming out in October and was written by the two brothers that make up the For King and Country music group. I believe this is their first book collaboration, and they did a great job on it. They came up with a great main character who is very flawed and imperfect, but risks everything to do the right thing. My heart broke as I read the book and realized what a realistic picture it is of what is going on in our country and others.
Even though it is obvious the girls in the story are being used for sexual purposes, there is no graphic content or anything that would be objectionable. It isn't an easy read, as it is difficult to read the plight of young women knowing that it really goes on.
I really enjoyed the book, and believe it is a 5 star novel. The writing was very well done, it had great characters, and had a very cool ending.
This is one of those books that shakes you up, and I am hoping that it helps me to do more about human trafficking, though I am not sure what I can do. I highly recommend it....... and the movie looks good also.
