Girl, Stolen by April Henry is about this girl named Cheyenne Wilder, and what happens when she gets kidnapped by accident. Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of her stepmom's car while her mom gets medicine for her. Suddenly Cheyenne realizes that their car is being stolen. The kidnapper, Griffin, hadn't meant to kidnap Cheyenne, he really just want to steal the car. Once Griffin's dad figured out that Cheyenne's father is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes. They now have a reason to keep her. Cheyenne has to survive this nightmare. Not only is she sick with pneumonia, she's also blind.
Girl, Stolen is a very suspenseful novel. This book is constantly interesting and never bored me. My favorite aspect of this book was how brave and resourceful Cheyenne was and how thoroughly her blindness was integrated into the story. Her blindness was presented in a believable and enlightening way, and I liked that she was so smart and capable. This was such a fascinating read. It was thrilling and fast-paced, I literally gasped a few times! The story was told from alternating view points and sometimes this can be distracting, but here it really worked well. Both main characters were really well written
