Stranger Things
By Erin Healy

What kind of person would sacrifice his life for a stranger? How would you feel if you were the stranger for whom the life was sacrificed?

Those are two of the questions Erin Healy answers in "Stranger Things," her novel that centers around the ever-growing problem of human sex-trafficking.

Serena Diaz, a promising young science teacher, is falsely accused of sexually abusing a male student. As she tries to clear her head after the allegations are brought to light, she comes in contact with members of the sex-trafficking ring, and the man who saves her life. Eventually she begins working with the people who are trying to bring the ring down. Along the way, we learn that she is also being played by members of the ring.

From nearly the very beginning of the story we know who is running the ring, and who is trying to stop it. The fun part is putting the pieces of the puzzle together as the main characters do. Along the way Serena also gets some help from an unexpected ally. She also, ultimately, discovers her true calling in life.

Erin Healy's books have a bit of the paranormal in them as well, and it's interesting to see how the things Serena sees come true -- or not.
