Summary: A 17-year-old Moldovan girl whose parents have been killed is brought to the United States to work as a slave for a family in Los Angeles.
Hannah believes she’s being brought from Moldova to Los Angeles to become a nanny for a Russian family. But her American dream quickly spirals into a nightmare. The Platonovs force Hannah to work sixteen-hour days, won’t let her leave the house, and seem to have a lot of secrets—from Hannah and from each other.
Stranded in a foreign land with false documents, no money, and nobody who can help her, Hannah must find a way to save herself from her new status as a modern-day slave or risk losing the one thing she has left: her life.
Review: Trafficked is one of those books you just can’t put down. You need to keep reading to see what happens next. It is a very addicting read. I was pulled in from the first page and couldn’t stop reading. I needed to know how it was going to end for Hannah.
This was the first book on this topic that I’ve read and it made me want to read more. It is incredible and powerful. Even though I gave it four stars instead of five (I couldn’t tell you why that is) I still really enjoyed it and I wouldn’t change a thing about this book. Trafficked will be staying with me for a very long time. It’s a definite must read. Please pick it up.
