Girls like us

Girls like Us is a memoir by Rachel Lloyd that highlights the impacts of commercial sex on young girls in the United States. She carefully explains the issue using her own story to make the audience understand the magnitude of the problem. She delivers the story in an effective manner which triggers an emotional reaction from the audience. Lloyd talks about the vulnerability of these girls and the how society has continued to look down on the issue while glorifying some of the perpetrators of the act. The memoir is, thus, a good mirage of some of these events which occur in the society yet few people are brave enough to expose them.
