Read in December, 2011

Cheyanne Wilder is not having a good day. She has pneumonia and is waiting for her stepmom to pick up her prescription. When the car she is waiting in is stolen by a small time thief it officially becomes the second worst day of her life. What could be worse? The day her mom was killed and Cheyanne became blind.

Not realizing what he has done until it is too late, Griffin must now take the car back to his abusive father with the added inconvenience of a kidnapped teenager in the backseat. Acting like a tough guy, Griffin takes control of his hostage while trying to figure out a way to return Cheyanne alive.

Unfortunately, all of Griffin's plans change when his father finds out Cheyanne's father is the president of Nike. Now the clock is running out for Cheyanne to find a way to survive. Can she trust Griffin enough to count on his kind heart to help or is she on her own?

There is just enough action in this story to generate appeal for boys despite the female protagonist. There are some great insights into what life is like for a someone without sight as well as how difficult it can be to cope in an emotionally abusive family situation.

April Henry Hey, I'm glad you liked it. It was inspired by something that really happened - blind girl, back of car, keys in car, guy stole car. Only in real life he let her out after a couple of miles. When I saw the girl being interviewed on the news, I thought - that would make a good book!
