Peek Inside Naked

When I was thirteen, I ran away to New York City and found a nightmare that lasted three years and left me broken. Only now I’m back home and have a chance to start over. And the first real hope I see is in the wide, brightly lit smile of Jackson, the boy next door. So I lie to him, to protect us both. The only problem is that someone in my school knows about New York. And it's just a matter of time before the real Anna is exposed...

The best place to hide is in a lie…

I could never fit in to the life my parents demanded. By the time I was thirteen, it was too much. I ran away to New York City…and found a nightmare that lasted three years. A nightmare that began and ended with a pimp named Luis. Now I am Dirty Anna. Broken, like everything inside me has gone bad.

Except that for the first time, I have a chance to start over. Not just with my parents but at school. Still, the rumors follow me everywhere. Down the hall. In classes. And the only hope I can see is in the wide, brightly lit smile of Jackson, the boy next door. So I lie to him. I lie to protect him from my past. I lie so that I don’t have to be The Girl Who Went Bad.

The only problem is that someone in my school knows about New York.

Someone knows who I really am.

And it’s just a matter of time before the real Anna is exposed…

The very first thing that drew me to Naked was the stunning cover. It's simple yet it's impactful. I love when authors touch on subjects that are outside of what's usually written about, and Naked falls into that category. It's the story of Anna, who runs away from home at the age of thirteen and... ...more

My Thoughts:

Naked is an excellent debut by Stacey Trombley. It is the powerful and eye opening story of Anna Rodriguez. Anna ran away from her dysfunctional family at the young age of thirteen. She left with the naive dreams of a young girl hoping to become a star in New York. Instead, she ended... ...more

My Review:

I received an e ARC of Naked from Entangled Teen via Net Galley , in exchange with an honest review.

So far,Naked is the best book that I have read this year ! Not only does the author discuss a topic that many writers stay away from, but also she does it perfectly !

We follow the story o... ...more

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect by Stacey Trombley's Naked. I knew it would be more of a serious book, but I didn't realize how much it would capture me. This story is one of those that will grab you by the throat and take your breath away. If you're looking for a lighthearted read, this boo... ...more

"Everyone's been through something... I mean, what's normal, anyway?"

First of all, that cover is amazing. It's so simple, but still beautiful. Secondly, I think that this is a very strong debut novel!

This book faces a tough issue that I haven't seen written about in many YA novels - teenage pr... ...more

Thank you Netgalley for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review

This is exactly what I want in a dark, emotional contemporaries Naked not only gave me the fix I needed, but managed to blind side me. I just finished and my heart won't stop beating for Anna. From page one to... ...more

By Sierra the Nerdgirl July 07, 2015

If I were to describe this book in one word, it would be brilliant. I am so impressed with how well done this book way. Stacey Trombley approached such a touchy subject--underage prostitution in an excellent style. The writing, plot, and character development coupled with the contemporary aspects... ...more

By Abbey February 28, 2017

This book was really powerful. I think having books that talk about real issues and don't hold back on what really happens or can happen to people and kind of refreshing. Like this stuff needs to be known.
This book is about a victim of child prostitution and how she deals with the aftermath.
Als... ...more

I won this book in a box of goodies from Brenda Drake. Less than 24 hours have passed, and not only did it rocket to the top of my read list (past even a borrowed book I was already reading), but I've read every wonderful word already. It was easy to identify with the character Anna. "I'm not thi... ...more

By Wendy F July 15, 2015

I think what made me select Naked for review was that I was looking for something dark and real after having finished All the Rage by Courtney Summers. In All the Rage the subject matter was rape, and how society criminalizes the victims. Naked was about teenage runaways and teenage prostitution.... ...more

Anna grew up with a rough childhood which resulted in her running away to the city of her dreams, New York. Only did that result in her working as a child prostitute. Three years later the law finds her and takes her back home to her parents. Now she has the chance to live a better life, but is t... ...more

Naked isn't an easy read. Not in the sense that it is hard to read, it is thought provoking and raw. Anna's story is one of many, I think it is easily forgotten that in large cities there are young girls who are sold for the pleasure of other men. N... ...more

By Shaz September 10, 2015

This book has made such an impact with me it's hard to begin my review on this as it is such a powerful story.

There are so many themes running through this story, hopelessness, empowerment, hurt, loss, betrayal, love, secrets, second chance, what is normal? and naivety. There is something in this... ...more

By Sarika March 02, 2016

Naked is very intriguing at the first glance. Trying hard to run away from disturbed pasts and trying even harder to build a pleasant future is a hit theme, and it works every time. Just the title and cover of the book are so interesting that it's worth a thousand glances. And once the story is t... ...more

By Krystianna July 12, 2015

This was definitely interesting and suspenseful. Full review to come.

Updated on July 12, 2015

Naked was definitely a unique book. It was unlike anything I'd ever read before. It follows Anna, who ran away from her family at age thirteen. She ended up in New York City, dating a guy named Luis who... ...more

Short and Sweet:

I loved this emotional and deep story!

I am soooo happy to be on this blog tour because I cant recommend this book enough. NAKED follows Anna, a teen prostitute who is just reunited with her family (and not quite so happily). Shes been gone for three years, and she do... ...more

By Tony April 12, 2015

Its a book that tugs at all your emotions. Very strong characters with a very good story. Keeps you reading. ...more

By Holly January 05, 2016

I received an eARC of this from Entangled Teen for the blog tour.

I have to say, this is a pretty edgy story for a YA novel. Not that thats a bad thing, not at all. In fact, I liked that it pushed the envelope, that it brought into play something that you never think about in relation to a teenage... ...more

Anna ran away from her rich abusive father and her submissive mother at the age of thirteen. She hopped on a bus and disappeared for three years. She never expected the turn of events that led her into prostitution. And yet they happened. But Anna gets caught a... ...more

Review to come with blog tour.

NAKED was a haunting read. This one will stick with me for quite some time. As read from the blurb, Anna has some dark secrets, a past that is troubled and resurfaces in a new life she is trying to rebuild.

NAKED is not your typical happy-go-lucky-teenage-love-at-fi... ...more

By Paula July 05, 2015

As readers will know , I am a cover girl and that is what drew me to this book as the cover was so innovative and creative. Who would have thought to create a cover like this to explain Stacey's new book "Naked".

In Naked, we meet Exquisite ,a sixteen year old prostitute living in New York. The f... ...more

By heather - NightlyReading July 07, 2015

I was a little hesitant to read this book but as most of you already know, I love books that deal with really taboo issues and this one really had my interest from the blurb.

I had always heard stories of runaways that had turned to prostitution but had never realized what would happen if one deci... ...more

At the community college where I teach math, the counseling office had this book on a recommended reading list. One of my students (well over the age of 18) had reported a domestic violence issue to me, and I had visited the counseling office to seek advice on how best to respond.

This book dealt... ...more

By Krista June 05, 2015

Heart wrenching.

I read this book right behind a similar book and the emotions portrayed in this one were so accessible, so real. I literally felt Anna's frustration and loneliness and her poor mother's confusion, struggle to show she loved her daughter.

I also loved Anna's strength. You wanted her... ...more

About the author

Stacey Trombley

Stacey Trombley lives in Ohio with her husband and the sweetest Rottweiler you’ll ever meet. She’s always been the weird one in the family (which is saying something since her father is a full time balloon artist) and she’s totally proud of that fact. She thinks people are fascinating and loves exploring the diversity around her. Any chance she has, she’s off doing or learning something new. She went on her first missions trip to Haiti when she was twelve-years-old, and is still dying to go back. Her “places to travel” list is almost as long as her “books to read” list. She wants to bring something new to the world through her writing, but just giving a little piece of herself is more than enough. You can find her online at and on twitter @trombolii.
