Found this title on a book club list. The novel tells the story of a town near Mexico City where young girls are stolen away from their families by drug traffickers.

These girls are then forced into prostitution and most never survive very long.

In the small town, daughters are disguised as boys so the drug lords will leave them alone. Living in abject poverty they know nothing of life outside their town other than the dangers that await should they be discovered.

A quick read and very a heart rendering story.
