book-cover---girls-like-us, Thank You Rachel Lloyd for telling your story. I read this book in 2 days & realized the Girls2B are right here in NY.
http://www.gems-girls.org. Spreading awareness about sexual slavery in the USA, especially as it deals with young girls.
At thirteen, Rachel Lloyd found herself caught up in a world of pain and abuse, struggling to survive as a child with no responsible adults to support her. Vulnerable yet tough, she eventually ended up a victim of commercial sexual exploitation. It took time and incredible resilience, but finally, with the help of a local church community, she broke free of her pimp and her past. 1210L
An important book about the sex trafficking of girls in the US. There is also a documentary about this same topic and Rachel Lloyd's organization (GEMS) called "Very Young Girls". Sad, moving, and so important.

What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D

"Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury was the very first science fiction book I read and I just loved it. "Books are to remind us what asses and fools we are.” ~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This might be my favorite book ever! (Or close to it!) I LOVED it.
"Fahrenheit 451" - Ray Bradbury I read this in high school. Pretty good book for a SciFi story.
I pinned this under art (maybe prophetic art). Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Perhaps the most ironic banned book situation, Fahrenheit 451 deals with the issue of censorship in a dystopian society that sends firefighters out to burn down houses discovered to have books inside. Those opposed to this book claim various reasons for banning it including profanity, portrayal of smoking and drinking, and anti-religious and anti-establishment sentiments.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This has to be one of the coolest book covers ever.
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury. This is one of my favorite book covers.
