Girl, Stolen by April Henry

I had ordered this book through Scholastic and wanted to preview it before I placed it in my library.  This quick but riveting read was a sure fit for any of my kids that want action and love a good suspenseful read.  The story is very simple but that is also part of the elegance of the book, it doesn’t need to be complicated to draw the reader in.  It wasn’t anything that changed my world but it was a fun read.

Bottom line: Mature subject matter but not much in bad language, some beating up and swearing.  Most 5th graders could handle this no problem.

From Goodreads:

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?
