*** Wall Street Journal and USA Today best seller! ***<br /><br />While more and more people each day become aware of the dangerous world of human trafficking, most people in the U.S. still believe this is something that happens to foreign women, men, and children--not something that happens to their own.<br /><br />In this powerful true story, Theresa L. Flores shares how her life as an All-American, blonde-haired 15-year-old teenager who could have been your neighbor was enslaved into the dangerous world of sex trafficking while living in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit. Her story peels the cover off of this horrific criminal activity and gives dedicated activists as well as casual bystanders a glimpse into the underbelly of trafficking. And it all happened while living at home wihtout her parents ever knowing about it. Involuntarily involved in a large underground criminal ring, Ms. Flores endured more as a child than most adults will ever face their entire lives.<br /><br />In this book, Ms. Flores discusses how she healed the wounds of sexual servitude and offers advice to parents and professionals on preventing this from occurring again, educating and presenting significant facts on human trafficking in modern day America.

<b>鈥淎n original, compelling, and provocative exploration of ethical issues in our society, with thoughtful and balanced commentary. I have not seen anything like it.鈥?鈥擜lan Lightman, author of聽<i>Einstein鈥檚 Dreams聽</i></b><br /><br /> Drawing upon the author鈥檚 two decades teaching medical ethics, as well as his work as a practicing psychiatrist, this profound and addictive little book offers up challenging ethical dilemmas and asks readers, <i>What would </i>you<i> do?</i><ul><li>A daughter gets tested to see if she鈥檚 a match to donate a kidney to her father. The test reveals that she is not the man鈥檚 biological daughter. Should the doctor tell the father? Or the daughter?</li><li>A deaf couple prefers a deaf baby. Should they be allowed to use medical technology to ensure they have a child who can鈥檛 hear?聽</li><li>Who should get custody of an embryo created through IVF when a couple divorces?聽</li><li>Or, when you or a loved one is on life support, <i>Who says you鈥檙e dead?</i></li></ul> In short, engaging scenarios, Dr. Appel takes on hot-button issues that many of us will confront: genetic screening, sexuality, privacy, doctor-patient confidentiality. He unpacks each hypothetical with a brief reflection drawing from science, philosophy, and history, explaining how others have approached these controversies in real-world cases. <i>Who Says You鈥檙e Dead?</i> is designed to defy easy answers and to stimulate thought and even debate among professionals and armchair ethicists alike.

THIS BOOK IS BEING OPTIONED FOR FILM! <br />Lindsey, a young woman, narrates the story of her childhood growing up in an abusive home, where brutal beatings and violence took place. She refers to her therapist, that her father is "The Boogeyman." Things inside the home only get worse when Lindsey begins to blossom as a young teenager. Not only the beatings, now her father begins to molest, sexually assault, and brutally rape her. It doesn't stop there. Matter's for Lindsey only seem to get worse and her life begins to spiral out of control. A must read. Winner of a Reader's Choice Award! This is part of a book series. "Mother Should Have Build The Wall," is part two of the book series. Part of the proceeds from both books go to Janie's Fund - Janie's House, that front man of Aerosmith, Steven Tyler, started for young, abused girls to have a safe place to go for therapy and treatment after abuse from their fathers. What a great cause! Your reviews matter! It helps the book sell and grow for this cause. Please be kind and leave a review! My story was not easy to write, but I did it! Thank you for your kindness!

The world of dementia care can be a difficult one for carers to navigate, posing new challenges at every stage from diagnosis to end of life. In her ground-breaking investigation, rooted in original empirical data, Rosie Harding explores the regulatory and legal dimensions of caring for a person with dementia. By exploring carers' experiences of dementia care, she critiques the limitations of current approaches to health and social care regulation. This socio-legal work is a new contribution to the study of feminist care ethics, relationality, and vulnerability theory. Duties to Care argues that by understanding the relational contexts that shape everyday experiences of regulatory structures, we will better understand where law is operating to support carers, and where it adds to the difficulties they experience. Ultimately, the challenges that dementia poses will be addressed only if we find solutions that take account of the relationality of life, dementia, and law.
