Girl, Stolen by April Henry

Girl, Stolen
by April Henry
Pages: 213
Released: Sept 28, 2011
Girl, Stolen
Summary: Cheyenne is sitting in the backseat of her mother's car while her mother goes into the pharmacy. Its only been five minutes and her mother has already returned. The door slams louder than usual and Cheyenne smells cigarettes--it's definitely not her mother. She realizes the car is being stolen and she has no way of escaping... because for the past three years, Cheyenne has been blind. Who will save Cheyenne?

My Thoughts: So much happens in a 200 page book!

What I liked: I loved everything about the Cheyenne's character, she was intelligent, cunning, brave, strong, and independent. And I loved to hate the bad guys--they were brutal and actually bad bad-guys. A lot of unexpected things happened in this book and I loved every part of it. The situations in this book are very realistic and the writing really drew me in. She really lets us experience the mindset of a blind person and what the way that they experience things. 

What I disliked: The first few chapters are a bit slow, but it really picks up after.

Conclusion: So glad I picked this book up!

4.5/5 stars
