First pass query for Damaged Goods (err, Off the Strip)

Abandoned by her father and forced to suffer through her mother's alcoholism and revolving door of men, seventeen year old Missy Clarke is left emotionally damaged. Already hanging by a thread, she witnesses her only friend, Damon, plunge off a bridge. Now, a year later, she's had enough of her broken past and sets out to make a new life for herself.

She soon learns that arriving in Las Vegas penniless and homeless isn't much better. Desperate, Missy is pulled into a world of teenage prostitution when she meets up with a 'family' of other homeless teens struggling to survive.

Is Missy capable of turning years of pain and disappointment into courage and leadership when her new family is kidnapped by a rival ring leader? 

Your thoughts???
