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?

    " This was about a 16 year old blind girl who gets accidentally kidnapped when someone steals her mom's car. It was okay for me but despite the clever premise, it was fairly predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. Kenyon | 10/29/2013

    " What a great read. The main character discovers strength through a trial. She is blind and is kidnapped when her step-mother's vehicle is stolen. She wants to escape because she doesn't believe they will let her go after a ransom payment is made. Would be a great addition to the next Rosie List. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda Jones | 5/20/2013

    " This book seems to be fairly realistic without being graphically detailed. I liked the main character, Cheyenne, and her strategy of making sure her kidnapper saw her as a person. Scholastic says it has some mature content, but I feel it is appropriate for a junior high library. Quick read. "

    " I'm an April Henry fan. She does a great job with both the character of Cheyenne and Griffin, making Griffin in particular very human. If you want to know how to start a story in media res, study this opening. "
