Central theme in this story. Not having an alcohol or drug problem I cannot relate, being female and knowing that the sex trade is something that happens daily is something I can relate with.
What did you think of the ending? I felt the ending wrapped everything up nicely. Knowing that Marti is now recovered and living a productive life thrilled this reader.
If you were to talk with the author, what would you want to know? I would like to know how/why she allowed someone to talk her into traveling to Japan. I understand she thought she was going to a job, but the out of the way airport, the weird meeting, everything just seemed off.
If you could rewrite the ending, would you? No, but I would have liked to know more about her life in rehab. The first few month or even years would be interesting reading.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
