Ride or Die
by Wanda Taylor
When 15-year-old Kanika falls for Danny, an older guy she has always had a crush on, she becomes his "ride or die chick". Soon after establishing that she will do anything for him, Danny sells her into the sex trade. Kanika is drugged and taken to Toronto where she finds her friend has also been a victim of the sex trafficking plot. With the help of an older sex worker, Kanika manages to survive and escape the people abusing her.
Based on true events, Ride or Die tells the story of how a young Black girl from a small town is lured into the sex trade by an older boy.
