Hannah has struggled ever since her parents were killed and her beloved uncle vanished. So when she's offered the chance to leave Moldova and become a nanny for a family in Los Angeles, it seems like a dream come true-and at first it is. But after weeks of working sixteen-hour days and not being able to leave the house, she still hasn't been paid. As things go from bad to worse, Hannah realizes that things are not at all what they seem and she finds herself doing things she never imagined herself capable of. But as she begins uncovering the family's crooked history, she may be exposing more than she bargained on-and putting her life in danger.


Praise for Trafficked by Kim Purcell:

"... chillingly credible and unflinchingly revealed ... Hannah herself, compelling and believable, keeps readers focused on her plight and that of other de facto slaves worldwide." —Kirkus

"Many reluctant readers won't be able to put down this riveting novel ... The characters ring true and as the plot reaches a crisis point, readers will be drawn in by the suspense of Hannah's captivity." —School Library Journal

"Purcell's well-researched look into human trafficking has the slow pull of a dawning nightmare ... Gritty, realistic, and eye-opening." —Booklist

"An eye-opening debut novel about modern-day slavery in America." —Horn Book
