If you get a chance, read The Blue Notebook. It’s not a happy story and not for children, but it reveals a not-too-hidden world that still exists in our modern society. It’s an unpleasant world, one we’d rather relegate to the dusty streets of a developing country. Truth is, child brides, child prostitution and child abuse exist in all societies, including our own. Sadly, it’s happening right now somewhere in the world even as you read these lines.
