This was a well-written story that some may find difficult to read due to the context. I was pulled into the story from the very beginning and empathized for Cookie. Trying to find her inner strength to get away from a dangerous situation. Brady writes a tantalizing, thought-provoking, yet entertaining read that will not bore you.
