"Faraway: a suburban boy's story as a victim of sex trafficking is one man's story of a subject so taboo, people rarely talk about it. When Kevin was fourteen years old, he was just starting to understand his orientation as a gay teen living in a suburb of St. Louis. Then he met someone who he thought was his friend. This man was no friend. Instead, he coerced Kevin into child prostitution. During this difficult time, Kevin befriended two boys also trapped in the thinly concealed underworld of sex trafficking. What he found surprised him -- these friends gave him a gift that nearly forty years later has continued to shape his life. Co-written by Rev. R.K. Kline and author Daniel D. Maurer, this book is not only Kevin's memoir, but also a tribute to friendships that can shape a person's faith and worldview in the worst of situations. Dr. Ric Curtis and Dr. Anthony Marcus from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City offer an analysis on how underage prostitution has changed over the years and what remains the same." --… (more)
