Review

This book is about a girl named Cheyenne who is completely blind. She has severe pneumonia. While her stepmom is getting her prescription in the drugstore Cheyenne stays in the car. The car door is left unlocked and she is laying in the back of the car. All of a sudden the car takes off with a voice of a man. At that moment Cheyenne realized she was being kidnapped. The man who kidnapped her name is Griffin. He didn't want her, he just wanted the car. When he realized that Cheyennes father is the Nike President he realizes that he could make some big bucks.


Girl, Stolen is definitely one of my favorite books because it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Every page you turn the story just keeps getting better and better. At times it is a little scary but the book has a very good moral. This is basically a mystery and the problem isn't resolved until the very end. I 110 percent recommend this book to anyone that wants to read a book that keeps your attention.
