The premise of the book is that a fifteen-year-old girl is kidnapped by an adult man. The man drugs her and films himself and other men raping her. The actual instances of rape are not described. The kidnapper reveals that he had been stalking her and her family for months and that he has kidnapped other girls around the US before. He threatens to kidnap the girl's younger sister if the girl does not comply with being sold to another trafficker. The girl does manage to escape in the end. A separate teenage girl is in a physically and verbally abusive relationship for much of the book. The boyfriend views sex as something that she "owes" him. Towards the end of the book, he sends revenge porn photos of her to all their friends and classmates. Many of her male classmates react to the images by verbally harassing her. The boyfriend does get arrested for distributing child pornography in the end.
