Girl Stolen

Author: April Henry

Date Published: December 1st, 2010

Pages: 213


  Sixteen-year-old Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of the car while her stepmom fills a prescription for antibiotics. Before Cheyenne realizes what's happening, the car is being stolen.

    Griffin hadn't meant to kidnap Cheyenne and once he finds out that not only does she have pneumonia, but that she's blind, he really doesn't know what to do. When his dad finds out that Cheyenne's father is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes--now there's a reason to keep her. 

     How will Cheyenne survive this nightmare?

Genre: Mystery/Suspense


     One of the only reasons that I read this book was because I wanted a book to red on the plane ride to California for Easter vacation. I wanted to read it before I got Light on the 2nd of April, I ended up getting done with it five days before Light came out.  It was a good stand alone book, nothing special but it was good.  I liked how it was about a blind girl who was sick and basically completely vulnerable.
     Cheyenne was a strong character, strong enough for a blind girl. She wasn't blind her whole life; she became blind the same moment her mother died, which I find really depressing.  But at least she still had a dad and an actually nice stepmom, I have had my share experiences with evil stepmothers, trust me.
     Griffin was nice in an Aladdin  way, a diamond in the ruff. Growing up stealing cars, but feeling bad when he accidentally kidnaps a girl and then making sure she doesn't get hurt by his comrades.  I liked Griffin, I didn't like his dad.
     I didn't like how badly he treated Cheyenne and how he pretended that she couldn't hear him because she was blind. So insolent. But I have to cut this review short because I'm afraid I'm writing this rather late at night. Til' it be tomorrow...


Happy Reading,
Alivia :)
