Once upon a time I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time I didn't know how lucky I was.
When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends -- her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.
Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.
This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.

My Thoughts:

Okie if you guys want a Go Goosebumps raising book, then you need to pick this one up! It’s a story that needed to be told and Scott did an abs amazing job bringing this girls tragic story to life. It’s a terrifying and chilling story about a girl who was kidnapped 5 years before and tells the story about her life with her kidnapper. It’s just one of those books that has to be put down several times but not because it’s bad but because it’s just that hard to read about her life. As soon as you put it down, you’ll want to pick it right back up because you want to know what happens. Half of the book is told in third person and the other is in first. You can literately see yourself in this girls shoes, feel her pain and see what she’s been through. Scotts “Living Dead Girl” will be a book that will be talked about for decades to come! I give this novel 5 out of 5 paws!

  1. Thanks for the review! I have a copy of this and a part of me really want to read it, but the other part is just scared, I guess, heh ...

  2. I actually prefer books that are sensitive in topic and you feel like you can't read on. They make the best stories!

    Great review! I will definitely keep this one on my mind.

  3. I loved ths book. Elizabeth is great. :]
