Girl Stolen by April Henry


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?

Epic Wins:

  • Words to describe it: Thrilling, Spine-tingling, and a dash of possible romance. 
  • You can’t get much better than this book when it comes to on the edge of your seat craziness. 
  • Cheyenne: The blind girl who gets kidnapped. She is spunky and has spirit. Even when she is deathly sick she manages to come up with a plan.
  • Griffin: A thief, and a bad one at that. He goes to steal a car and ends up accidently kidnapping a girl. This kid has some of the worst luck.
  • The ending, but I don’t want to spoil it so you will have to deal with nada.
  • The concept is amazing! A blind girl gets kidnapped and has to try and escape. A boy accidently steals a human and ends up falling for her. GENIUS!
  • Cheyenne is a smart cookie, very smart. She pulls the wool over her captures eyes a couple of times, quite beautifully really.
  • The way the writing builds up suspense till it’s ringing your neck, you can feel the thick layers of suspense.
  • The way the two characters lives are so different but in these crazy coincidences (which in the words of Gibbs I don’t believe in coincidence) they end up holding on to hope in one other.

Epic Fails:
Villain Edition

  • Griffins father Roy: He’s a maniac! Oh my goodness, I mean talk about creeper. To find out why he is such a weirdo, but the perfect villain, read the book!
  • The Henchman: The two goons who are Roy’s boys. You know the ones that knock heads when necessary. Come on they are essential to a villainous operation! They are so funny at times though.

 I LOVED the fact that book starts right away, no gobbly gook ;). There was never a dull moment and it was really fun to watch the characters. I would say this book is some kind of awe.

just sayin,


  1. I want to read this so badly...I love how powerful it sounds! Great review, Kare :)

  2. I love the idea of the book. I mean a blind girl getting kidnapped? AWESOME! But sad...very sad. I love that there's romance in it though. Super review Kare!

  3. I'm so glad you liked it. I really wanted to read it, but then everyone kept telling me it was crap compared to Stolen by Lucy Christopher. So screw them, it sounds awesome and I'm going to read it!

  4. Oh, wow! I really want to read this! Totally getting added to my wishlist. :D



Let me know what you think was an epic win or an epic fail, or if you feel like it make robot sound like beep beep boo bop. Really I could careless just keep it clean.
