Girl, Stolen by April Henry

What's this one about?
Sixteen year-old Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of a car while her mom fills her prescription at the pharmacy. Before Cheyenne realizes what's happening, their car is being stolen—with her inside! Griffin hadn’t meant to kidnap Cheyenne, all he needed to do was steal a car for the others. But once Griffin's dad finds out that Cheyenne’s father is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes—now there’s a reason to keep her. What Griffin doesn’t know is that Cheyenne is not only sick with pneumonia, she is blind. How will Cheyenne survive this nightmare, and if she does, at what price?

What did I think?

When I read the jacket of this book I instantly knew I wanted to get my hands on it! I needed to see what was going to happen to this girl who was sick, blind and now kidnapped! I wanted to find out how she would get away? Would she get away? So many questions popped into my head. 

'Girl, Stolen' was a good read, but not quite what I had expected. I thought it would have a little more suspense--and I guess I wish it did. I never felt like I was wanting to flip the pages faster to see what was going to happen next, but it definitely kept me interested enough to keep reading. I would have liked to read a little more about the parents journey through their daughter's kidnapping, and I also wanted to read more about Griffin's past. 

Overall it was a great read, but left me wanting more.

How many stars?
