Product Description

Review

"This book talks about a lot of things that teens nowadays would experience." (Teen Summer Reading Club 2006-08-01)

"Charmed is the gold standard of what hi/lo titles can be. Highly Recommended." (CM Magazine 2004-11-26)

"This book broke my heart. It deals with a very difficult subject; one that society would rather sweep under the rug...This book is not only for teens, but also for parents. It calls for parents to value their children and to always put them first. I think this is a great book for young adults to read as it puts everything in perspective, and will help both young adults and parents become more knowledgeable in terms of protecting themselves and their loved ones. Five stars." (Bookvacations.wordpress.com 2011-03-18) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

I fell asleep in the boots and leather mini-skirt and nothing else. Dillon's brought a friend home. The friend is grinning down at me. "She'll do," he says. Izzy's mother works far away and leaves Izzy at home, alone with Rob the Slob. Angry at her mother and trying to deal with school, friends and the attentions of charismatic Cody Dillon, Izzy finds her life swirling out of control. Coerced into putting out to help Cody, Izzy finds she is one in a long line of girls ensnared in prostitution, with no way to escape.

3.0 out of 5 stars Charmed into a not-so-charmed life March 21 2008
By Volkert Volkersz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this book (in less than an hour) after a staff member questioned whether or not it was appropriate for our high school library. The subject matter is disturbing: a teen girl with poor self-esteem, and a dysfunctional home life, is charmed by the high-school dropout boy of her dreams into a life of drug abuse and prostitution.

Here are the reasons I'll keep it on my shelf. The book is an easy read, which may make it appealing to the very population that might be exposed to this type of life. And despite the subject matter, the language is fairly tame, with no real graphic descriptions of the events that take place.

The story does an effective job of showing the ugliness of a life of drugs and prostitution. This book may have a limited appeal in most high school libraries, but it might help some young people to think twice about lifestyle choices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Read Dec 10 2004
By Debra Behr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dillion, slowly seduces a young teen girl Lizzie, the high school drop out whom she has a crush on. Lizzie relationship with her mother is being interrupted by her mom's business trips. Making life even worse is `Rob the Slob' mom's pinhead boyfriend who coming between the two. Dillon's sexual and emotion seduction is like the light on the end of a tunnel for her. Lizzie runs away to live with him and ends up in the world of prostitution. She comes a prisoner in a drug dealer/pimp's, Barrel's, house. Although this is far from great writing and the plot is a little choppy, it will find it's way in teens' hands. This is part of a ORCA SOUNDING series which are very quick reads of realistic fiction.

Charmed was another winner from the wonderful Orca series.

These books are great at looking at social issues for YA without flinching and for making it real. I loved this book as I do all the books in the Orca series.

Got this book and it was bent. When I read about it, there was no mention of book being bent.
