Girl, Stolen by Guest Blogger: Amy B. – 8th Grader November 4, 2013

What would you do if you were kidnapped, had pneumonia, and left alone blind? You couldn’t see where you are and you are lost. Not knowing why you are there or your surroundings is what Cheyenne Wilder suffers with. She was kidnapped and cannot tell where she is. Her kidnapping was an accident, all Griffin wanted was the car. Roy, Griffin’s father, isn’t too happy about this at all. Griffin and Cheyenne become friends and help each other stay alive throughout the book.

Will Cheyenne escape? What will happen when they find out her dad is the head of a very powerful company? What will they do with Cheyenne?

I like Girl, Stolen by April Henry because it was a great mystery and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I never set it down. I recommend this book to any middle-schooler looking for a great mystery and wonderful book.

    Thank you so much! That book was a lot of fun to research and write. I get emails about it every day. You want to hear something funny? My first editor didn’t like it and rejected it. I felt so discouraged and wondered if I was wrong to like it so much. But then I found a new editor who loved it just the way it was.
