Diana | 3 comments I remember reading this book (young adult fiction i think) a couple years back (probably 5 or 6 years ago) and it was about these two boys (at least I think it was two boys- maybe a girl too) who decide to kidnap a girl who lives alone with one of her grandparents (i believe it was her grandfather) because they feel bad for her and think they would be "saving" her from a life of misery. That's pretty much all I can remember. I think the cover had like part of a girl's face on it and I remember it being pink... I've spent a lot of time looking for this book, so any help would be very much appreciated it!!

Diana, what do the kids think they are saving the girl from?
What happened to her parents? She doesn't have siblings?

Time period and location (U.S./country, region, big city/small town)?

Miss Mara | 156 comments The people who kidnap her are a girl and a boy, not two boys, but Glimmerglass by Jenna Black maybe? (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...)

Diana | 3 comments They believe they are saving her from a miserable life, for I don't think she's allowed to leave the house very often and the grandparent she lives with is strict and cruel. I think her parents died but i'm not sure how. I think it was a small town they lived in in the United States-not sure where though. It was a modern day book so no historical setting or anything.

Diana | 3 comments The book was not Glimmerglass but thank you so much for the suggestion!

Roaming_library | 17 comments I'm not sure if you're still looking, and this is a long-shot, but is it Claim to Fame? It isn't exactly like your description but the beginning is similar

Regina Osiecki | 257 comments Oddly enough, the manga Kaguya Hime had two boys kidnap a girl at the beginning as per the plot, which helped her get away from an unsavory situation with her adoptive mother, but I don't think that's the one of course just made me think of that one
