Girls Like Us British-born Rachel Lloyd dropped out of school at 13 to support her single alcoholic mother.

This is a memoir that tells her life story - a harrowing and inspirational tale of suffering, recovery, discovery, and nobility. Full description

Review:

"Rachel Lloyd's astonishing stories of life on the street have an accumulative power that left me reeling. What makes "Girls Like Us" such an extraordinary achievement is that her storytelling is unflinchingly honest, and yet filled with a sense of promise, filled with a profound sense of hope."--Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here and The Other Side of the River

From the Back Cover:

During her teens, Rachel Lloyd ended up a victim of commercial sexual exploitation. With time, through incredible resilience, and with the help of a local church community, she finally broke free of her pimp and her past and devoted herself to helping other young girls escape "the life."

In Girls Like Us, Lloyd reveals the dark world of commercial sex trafficking in cinematic detail and tells the story of her groundbreaking nonprofit organization: GEMS, Girls Educational and Mentoring Services. With great humanity, she shares the stories of the girls whose lives GEMS has helped—small victories that have healed her wounds and made her whole. Revelatory, authentic, and brave, Girls Like Us is an unforgettable memoir.
