A Stolen Life

Dugard, Jaycee. A Stolen Life. New York: Simon and Schuster, 2011.

When Jaycee Dugard was eleven years old, she was kidnapped on the way to school.  The man who kidnapped her kept her at his house and sexually abused her for eighteen years. She gave birth to her first child at fourteen.  When she was nearly thirty years old, she was discovered and reunited with her family again.  This book details her captivity.

This was not an easy book to read, but I am glad that Jaycee is strong enough and brave enough to tell her story, and I wish her all the best as she and her daughters recover.
