Review: Living Dead Girl

Title: Living Dead Girl
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Pages: 170
My Rating: 4 stars

"Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn't know how lucky I was."  

When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends -- her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.
Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.
This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.

                                            My Review
Wow. Just, wow. I read this book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down. The things that this girl experiences from the time she's kidnapped at 10 years old until the time she tells the story at age 15. While reading this book, I had that longing to jump right into the pages and beat the living daylights out of this Ray figure. It's very difficult to get through this story without crying. And, let me warn you, there WILL be tears. For those of us with little sisters, daughters, young nieces, little cousins, or just a big loving heart, this will be a gripping story that you'll never forget. I give it 4 stars for making me cry even a day after I finished it.
