Girl, Stolen" is a short read with significant strengths and weaknesses. The tension and nervousness mounted as I got closer and closer to the end. A great thing, but I still wanted more intensity and depth of content. This item: Girl, Stolen: A Novel.
April Henry's YA mysteries are intriguing. Girl, Stolen" is based on a news story, so although it seems far fetched, part of it was based on real events.

Girl, Stolen" had an exciting premise, but the book itself was disappointing. It lacked the tension and suspense it should have had. However, I liked Cheyenne's narration.

Praise for Girl, Stolen:
"Be ready to be startled and inspired as the story reaches its climax. Readers will race to the end.” ―The Strand Magazine
“The pace is impeccable, becoming rapidly more frantic as Cheyenne realizes her chances for success are dwindling. In addition, the premise itself is powerfully realistic and compelling, with one small incident (Griffin's jumping into a car that had the keys in the ignition) snowballing into a nightmare series of events that will change everyone.” ―BCCB
“Henry (Torched) spins a captivating tale that shifts between Cheyenne's and Griffin's thoughts. Both are well-built, complex characters, trapped in their own ways by life's circumstances, which--paired with a relentlessly fast pace--ensures a tense read.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Readers will be hard-pressed to put this one down before its heart-pounding conclusion.” ―School Library Journal
“Spine-tingling…Reminiscent of Gail Giles' thrillers and tension-filled to the last sentence, Girl, Stolen will resonate with readers long after the cover is closed. With a thoughtful and eye-opening look at disabilities, it highlights Cheyenne and Griffin's resourcefulness and resiliency as they save themselves--and possibly each other.” ―BookPage
“Thoroughly exciting.” ―Booklist
“Grabs your attention with the first page you read. . . . Each page holds new questions that are answered in the most unexpected ways.” ―VOYA, 5Q review
