Girl, Stolen

20121208-105948.jpgIf your family made its living illegally, what would you do if you stole a brand-new Cadillac Escalade and discovered you’d also kidnapped a 16-year old girl, asleep and covered with a blanket in the back? Not sure? Neither is Griffin, the 17-year old antagonist of April Henry’s terrific book Girl, Stolen. Adding to his dilemma: the girl is blind, and sick with pneumonia. When Griffin decides to bring Cheyenne Wilder back to his father’s house, we meet the scary thugs that make up Griffin’s family. We also learn just how strong–and how smart–Cheyenne actually is, especially when it’s revealed that she just happens to be the daughter of a multi-millionaire, Nike Corporation’s president. And Griffin? Interesting…..

Girl, Stolen is a page-turner that will appeal to guys as well as girls. Fans of Lucy Christopher’s exciting novel Stolen will also really like this book. Find it in New Arrivals, then Adventure.
