Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gabie drives a Mini Cooper. She also works part time as a delivery girl at Pete's Pizza. One night, Kayla — another delivery girl — goes missing. To her horror, Gabie learns that the supposed kidnapper had asked if the girl in the Mini Cooper was working that night. Gabie can't move beyond the fact that Kayla's fate was really meant for her, and she becomes obsessed with finding Kayla. She teams up with Drew, who also works at Pete's. Together, they set out to prove that Kayla isn't dead — and to find her before she is.

Review:

"When 17-year-old Kayla Cutler, an employee at Pete's Pizza, disappears while delivering an order, her fellow employees are shocked and disturbed. Unfolding over the two weeks after Kayla vanishes, Henry's (Girl, Stolen) heart-pounding mystery alternates among the perspectives of numerous characters, including Kayla's co-workers Gabie, who is traumatized by Kayla's kidnapping (and believes that she was the intended target), and Drew, a 'straight-C stoner' who is supporting his drug-addicted mother, as well as a diver searching the Willamette River, a psychic, Kayla herself— and the man who kidnapped her. As Kayla plots an escape from the room in which she's being held, Gabie and Drew try to investigate what happened to her, holding out hope that she's still alive. It's a riveting story that many readers will finish in one sitting, full of suspects and augmented by police reports, interviews, and newspaper articles that, along with the variety of voices, make the events feel all the more real. Each chapter is a surprise, and the tension builds steadily until the inevitable climactic face-off. Ages 12 and up. Agent: Wendy Schmalz, Wendy Schmalz Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PW, LLC.

Review:

Praise for Girl, Stolen:

"Girl, Stolen grabs your attention with the first page you read. . . . Each page holds new questions that are answered in the most unexpected ways." —VOYA, starred review

"Constantly interesting and suspenseful." —Kirkus Reviews

"A captivating tale . . . Well-built, complex characters, trapped in their own ways by lifes circumstances, which—paired with a relentlessly fast pace—ensures a tense read." —Publishers Weekly

"Girl, Stolen is page turning suspense with a clever heroine who meets up with bad luck, bad men, a bad dog, bad weather, bad health and has to face them without seeing them. A nail bitter." —Gail Giles

"A unique and clever premise. Cheyenne has to be one of the most resourceful heroines in recent memory" —Todd Strasser, bestselling author of Wish You Were Dead
