Smuggled book review

It’s time for my review of the book Smuggle by author Angela Karanja, a thriller full of suspense that deals with the issue of child trafficking.

Here is the cover, which sums up perfectly what this story is about:

What is it about?

This is the story of a 14 year old Kenyan girl named Tuliana, her life changes drastically when, without knowing why, she ends up on a plane with other teenagers and they end up arriving in the UK.

There her nightmare will begin, she will end up in several houses where she will be treated as if she were a slave.

Luckily for Tuliana, a friend of hers, Jonathan (who happens to be the son of a diplomat), embarks on a quest to find her and save her. However, such a decision will have important consequences for him?

What did I think of Smuggle?

Smuggle sheds some light on such a lurid subject as child trafficking. It is a story that has a very hard background as is the trafficking of human beings and that, however, it is necessary to know in order to be able to face such an affront to the rights and freedoms.

It is a fairly brief narration that is full of tense moments, it is a thriller where you can see the cruelest side of the human being and has a strong message to fight against this type of injustice.

Tuliana and Jonathan are characters that you easily connect with and without a doubt the way Smuggle is written makes you as a reader feel part of their story. The dialogues are believable and coherent as the main characters happen to be young teenagers, which is a good approach in my opinion.

All in all, a book that denounces the injustice in the world through a captivating story full of suspenseful moments, believable characters, and a very well-paced plot.

Don’t miss our last post, the difference between the Aes Sedai and the Confessors.
