Jade Brooks grew up like any other kid -- she played with friends, lovingly teased and was teased by her siblings, and excelled at school. It wasn't until she was removed from her family at age 11 that she felt something was wrong. Growing up between two of Halifax's predominantly black neighbourhoods, Jade was raised in communities plagued by social problems.
Addictions, Jade Brooks grew up like any other kid -- she played with friends, lovingly teased and was teased by her siblings, and excelled at school. Addictions, tangled personal relationships, social workers, and prison terms became everyday facts. When the first serious love of her life entered the picture at age 15, that relationship became the centre of everything. Following a path many have taken before, pushed along by her abusive boyfriend, Jade found herself in the sex trade.
She learned to sell her body in the strip clubs and massage parlours of Toronto and Montreal in order to survive. Gifted with the ability to recall details of personalities, events, and conversations, Jade reveals a reality that will be unknown to many of her readers. She tells her story straight out, no holds barred, just as she remembers it. By doing so, she allows her readers to come to a far deeper appreciation of the circumstances that lead to the trafficking of young women in Canada today.

Throughout the night, men come in and out of the rooms; other men whisk the girls away in cars, bringing them back a few hours later. Anjelique eventually escaped, and at the time of the news story, was spending time in drug rehab for her addiction. Traffickers seek out vulnerable, unhappy teens -- like runaways.
Juvenile detention facilities or social services centers such as the one in Hayward are prime recruiting grounds. Sometimes, young women already in the trade become recruiters themselves, approaching other vulnerable girls and offering them what seems like an exciting life. The new recruit comprehends the full reality of her new situation too late. Readily available drugs help numb the pain. Progress is slow. Until recently, victims were seen as law-breaking prostitutes, and law enforcement dealt with them accordingly.
State money has been directed to child welfare services to craft a specialized treatment program for survivors. Alameda County is one of the few in the country receiving funding to develop a pilot program of safe houses to shelter trafficked kids and help rehabilitate them. The shift from viewing kids selling sex as willing prostitutes to looking at them as victims in a larger crime ring began back in , with the passage of the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which defined human trafficking, victims and methods of prosecution.
But that law -- and many people at the time -- mainly looked at trafficking as an issue of smuggling foreign nationals. And from that work emerged an uncomfortable fact: Most victims of sex trafficking, as now defined in the law, are born on American soil. In the years since then, hundreds of laws in dozens of states have been passed to address specific aspects of sex trafficking and the exploitation of children.
California last year joined 17 other states that make all minors immune from prosecution for prostitution. Some 28 states have enacted so-called safe-harbor laws, which say that trafficked children should be treated as victims and be diverted from the justice system to appropriate services. Beginning with New York in , half of all states now have a law that allows someone who committed a crime while being trafficked the opportunity to get it wiped from their record.
The flurry of state legislation is important, supporters say. But a new law is only the first step; implementation is much harder. In other words, Alameda County, despite being one of the most active jurisdictions in the country on this issue, is still waiting to see real change.
Tina Frundt was one of those young women. A young kid who grew up in the foster care system in Chicago, she was adopted at age Soon after, she met a man 15 years her senior, who showered her with attention and gifts.
He told her he understood her. Frundt thought she fell in love with him. He convinced her to join him and his family in Cleveland, and at the age of 14, Frundt ran away with him. Frundt was told she had to do her part. A year after arriving in Cleveland, she was arrested in a police raid. But juvenile detention provided no real respite.
