Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott--what can I say, but, "Wow!" Kidnapped at 10 from a school field trip, and held captive by a psycho child molester until age 15, "Alice" has to choose her replacement, knowing she would rather be dead than alive. If you've ever wondered what Elizabeth Smart felt, or Shawn Hornbeck (who had to choose his own replacement), then read this book. It's obviously a gritty topic, meant for older teens. It's a quick read--I read the whole thing in 2 hours--but a very important one. I'm anxious to hear what others think of it. I'm giving it a MAYBE, but I am tentative, because this book definitely falls into the category of "depressing teenager book."
