Book: Girl, Stolen
Author: April Henry
Recommend: Eh, there is much better out there but it’s not awful…
I’m still not sure what possessed me to pick this one up but I did. A few pages in and I knew it wasn’t going to be something phenomenal. I was right.
This book tells the story of a blind girl who accidentally gets kidnapped when someone steals her stepmom’s car. Not much more to the plot than that.
It was a simple, quick read and that’s about the best thing I can say about it. The book was predictable, not exciting and didn’t really hold my interest. I would say that this book is a gateway teen novel, bordering that line between YA and middle grade fiction. Not a horrible read, but with so much better available, I would suggest steering clear. I’m glad I didn’t pay a dime for this one.
