I Cried to Dream Again

Trafficking, Murder, and Deliverance -- A Memoir



At once disturbing and empowering, the memoir of a courageous woman who was abused, groomed, and trafficked for sex from age eleven to age sixteen, who then killed her trafficker/father figure and was sentenced as a juvenile to life in prison without parole

I was eleven when I first met GG. I realized later that he had to have been aware of the chaos that was my life because he played me perfectly. I was walking home after school . . . I heard a red Mustang purring like a huge lion behind me as I turned onto my block. When it caught up with me, a man leaned out of the window and motioned for me to come closer. “Hey, excuse me,” he said. I approached the window and politely and cheerfully replied, ‘Yes?’ He said, “I’ve been noticing you a lot, and I just want to talk to you. I’m gonna go get some ice cream and go to the park. I would love for you to come and join me. We won’t be gone long. Is that okay with you?” Ice cream! I found his offer irresistible. GG leaned over and opened the passenger door, “What’s your name? People call me GG.” “Sara,” I said shyly.
