Trafficked, by Kim Purcell

Thought provoking book about human trafficking out of Moldova. 17 year old Hannah thinks she will be a nanny in Los Angeles, earning $400 a week, which she would use to send home to pay for her grandmother's cataract operation, but upon arrival, she realizes how naive she was.
This could have (and more realistically, should have) been much darker, but aimed at a YA audience, maybe the author didn't want to take it as dark as it really might have been.
Well done, but with some weak spots.
