Críticas:

"Riveting. . . . [Lloyd's] passionate, persuasive arguments for recognition and protection give a voice to the thousands of girls all around us who work and suffer in near invisibility." -- Corrie Pikul, Elle "Fascinating and moving." -- Marie Claire "Heartbreaking. . . . But the book is also at times funny, bawdy, and optimistic, as is Lloyd herself." -- Jennie Yabroff, Daily Beast "Rachel Lloyd's astonishing stories of life on the street have an accumulative power that left me reeling. What makes Girls Like Us such an extraordinary achievement is that her storytelling is unflinchingly honest, and yet filled with a sense of promise, filled with a profound sense of hope." -- Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here and The Other Side of the River "This book will burn a hole in your heart. The beauty of Rachel Lloyd's searing memoir is how she exorcises the pain of her own troubled girlhood by connecting with hundreds of young women on a brutal path." -- Mira Nair, director of Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala, and The Namesake "With empathy and intellect, Rachel Lloyd brings to light the heart-breaking stories of these lost, forgotten, and abused girls. Her own life story is a source of inspiration and hope. She is an important new voice of conscience to which America needs to pay attention." -- Geoffrey Canada, president and CEO, Harlem Children's Zone "Rachel Lloyd's memoir should be mandatory reading for every cop, prosecutor, judge, and `john', but also every mainstream American who thinks racism, classism, and misogyny don't exist." -- Sarah Jones, Tony Award-winning playwright/performer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Sarah Jones, Tony Award-winning playwright/performer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Sarah Jones, Tony Award-winning playwright/performer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassado "Girls Like Us is a life-changing book, in every sense of the word. Rachel Lloyd changed her life in order to help change the lives of thousands of others-read her incredibly powerful story, and your life will be changed too." -- Janice Erlbaum, author of Girlbomb: A Halfway Homeless Memoir and Have You Found Her: A Memoir "Girls Like Us is a powerful and eloquent recounting of the lives of children and young women caught up in the ravages of sexual exploitation....[It] offers valuable insights into understanding the complex emotional and economic factors that contribute to the exploitation of children and youth." -- Richard J. Estes, Professor of Social Work, University of Pennsylvania

Reseña del editor:

"Powerfully raw, deeply moving, and utterly authentic. Rachel Lloyd has turned a personal atrocity into triumph and is nothing less than a true hero. . . . Never again will you look at young girls on the street as one of 'those' women-you will only see little girls that are girls just like us." -Demi Moore, actress and activist With the power and verity of First They Killed My Father and A Long Way Gone, Rachel Lloyd's riveting survivor story is the true tale of her hard-won escape from the commercial sex industry and her bold founding of GEMS, New York City's Girls Education and Mentoring Service, to help countless other young girls escape "the life." Lloyd's unflinchingly honest memoir is a powerful and unforgettable story of inhuman abuse, enduring hope, and the promise of redemption.
