Take a teenage boy who’s only hope in life is to please his angry father, an Escalade with the keys left in the ignition, a teen girl asleep in the backseat, and what starts out as a simple car theft becomes a kidnapping.
Girl, Stolen (Henry Holt & Company, 2010) by April Henry is told in alternate viewpoints of sixteen-year-old Cheyenne, who has pneumonia, and Griffin, who accidentally stole her. Cheyenne is a very strong heroine, who has a big handicap in a self-rescue scenario–she’s blind!
April Henry is the author of other mysteries which I am checking out. Go to her website where you’ll find out fun things like… being published in a magazine when she was twelve… You’ll have to read the details there.
