Community Read - Virtual Book Discussion


Community Reads 2021: The Slave Across the Street by Theresa Flores

"In this powerful true story, Theresa shares how her life as an all-American 15-year-old teenager became enslaved into the dangerous world of sex trafficking all while living at home with unsuspecting parents in an upper middle-class suburb of Detroit.

Her story peels the cover off this horrific criminal activity and gives both dedicated activists and casual bystanders a glimpse into the underbelly of human trafficking and tools to help stop it. Theresa shares about the aftereffects of trafficking and how her faith set her on a spiritual journey to help others. Theresa's experience provides a well-rounded portrait of the dark world of human trafficking and serves as a reminder of the most important element to overcoming slavery: hope." - Amazon
