I loved Girl Stolen! I know my students will too! Imagine you are in your back seat, sick, waiting for your stepmom to pick up your medication and someone (not your stepmom) jumps in the car and speeds off! And on top of that, you are blind, that is what happens to Cheyenne Wilder. Cheyenne is totally believable as a strong female protagonist. The reader finds out later that she succumbed to weakness, pity and wanting to die after her accident and resulting blindness but she has worked hard to regain her life, maybe not as she knew it before, but some semblance of a life with a guide dog, a cane, family and friends. The students/readers will relate to Griffin as a teen who has had a very tough life, a nasty, mean father who makes money the wrong way and doesn't care in the least about anyone. But both Griffin and Cheyenne have different kinds of hope and that is what propels the suspense and drama in this numbing story of a car theft gone terribly awry. Will Cheyenne use her heightened senses to save herself? Will Griffin save Cheyenne? This story is one wild ride from start to finish, and you will not be disappointed!

For those who love mysteries and suspense and for the reluctant reader as well!
