If so, then the book failed. Descriptions of abuse and the rape of children doesn't do it for me. Is this meant to be an exp I will start by saying that I know I'm not the intended audience of this book.
Is this meant to be an expose into human trafficking and how awful it is? Then the detailed descriptions of the rape and abuse might have been meant to alarm, to alert. But instead leave the reader feeling uncomfortable, feeling that there's been just too much intimacy with the details to the point where you feel like you're part of the rape or abuse yourself. Either way, the book is uncomfortable and not one I enjoyed reading. The two girls are interesting Dominique was a sad pathetic creature that I lost all respect for - she'd been one to fight for herself and somewhere she gave up the fight to the point where she'd allow herself to be hurt and degraded Price Of Fame her husband.
The kind of girl that left LA to start over in New York, who was strong enough to give up the drugs and get off the streets should have been strong enough to say no to someone hurting her the way she was tortured and hurt afterwards. Casey just left me confused. As did the plot would anyone care that she'd been part of a cultish group growing up when she's a porn queen? Add to that the sheer impossibility of being able to read this book easily - no scene breaks to let you know when the action was Price Of Fame, head-hopping, occasionally just a confusing word of phrase that seemed out of place and misused - made this book hard to follow.
And the plot and characters weren't enough to make it Price Of Fame the effort. This book was recommended to me by my library when I went hunting for African American fiction. After reading this, I'm feeling a little hurt and betrayed and not as likely to follow their recommendations. And I'm really hoping that this Price Of Fame representative of other African American fiction out there.

While both girls manage to flee their horrendous conditions meeting up with Jordan Bleu only places the girls in more dire straits.
Jordan preys upon teenagers offering to take care of them and become their daddy. With Dominique and Casey Jordan decides to utilize their beauty to break out into the world of pornography.

Some Things Are Priceless Casey and Dominique have very different backgrounds and upbringings, yet life brings them to the same man, Jordan Bleu, and the same destination - the streets.
Desperately wanting to escape, is the price for freedom too high? In "Price of Fame," we find plenty of emotion, like lust, love, anger, fear, greed, and deceit. Price Of Fame would have preferred more development in some areas and a less rushed and tidy ending.
Because of that, the story sometimes was uneven.
