Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some heart-pounding scenes:

A gripping thriller, ripped from the headlines!
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. --Goodreads
This one sounds amazing.  There is this TV show that I found on TV somewhere while flipped the channels; it's called Locked Up Abroad.  The show reminds me a bit like this novel, even though there is no trafficking in the show.  Trafficking is a big problem and I've never read a book that dealt with the topic so this should be a nice read.  It would be scary to be in a different place with no friends to help you out in such circumstance.  Can't wait until this book comes out!  Would you read it?  What are you waiting for, on this fine Wednesday?
