Bahni Turpin helps listeners come to sympathize with Charlese Jones in the companion volume to Sharon Flake's earlier work, THE SKIN I'M IN, in which Charlese was primarily known as a bully. Here Char finds herself the victim of increasingly difficult and dangerous circumstances: needing to support herself on the street with an abandoned baby. Turpin ably expresses a range of emotions from Char and the characters around her. These vary from a gritty voice for the disreputable and threatening Daddy to the worry both she and her sister express. A supplement from the author is added explaining the importance of the topic of sex trafficking as well as the reasons she chose to use her former character to provide information and support to victims about this global problem.
