Carrie (boombaby13) | 4289 comments Camden, NJ, 1948.

When 11 year-old Sally Horner steals a notebook from the local Woolworth's, she has no way of knowing that 52 year-old Frank LaSalle, fresh out of prison, is watching her, preparing to make his move. Accosting her outside the store, Frank convinces Sally that he’s an FBI agent who can have her arrested in a minute—unless she does as he says.

This chilling novel traces the next two harrowing years as Frank mentally and physically assaults Sally while the two of them travel westward from Camden to San Jose, forever altering not only her life, but the lives of her family, friends, and those she meets along the way.

Karen Barber | 10140 comments Mixed feelings about this before starting. Didn’t realise this was what had inspired Nabokov.


message 18: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10140 comments Chapter 1 sets everything up clearly. Sally is desperate to fit in, but I can’t understand how this wasn’t seen or how nobody intervened. Different time.

Karen Barber | 10140 comments 8% - what on Earth was her mother thinking? You simply wouldn’t do this.

Karen Barber | 10140 comments 28%-amazed it took so long to alert the police, and I’m reading this with a sinking feeling.


message 21: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10140 comments 48% - not surprised the mother feels bad for her role in this. Still can’t believe this was able to happen.

Karen Barber | 10140 comments 73% - such a different time, but the mistakes made here are truly appalling.
