A Stolen Life.

At the age of eleven, Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped on her way to a school bus stop near her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. June 10th 1991, was the day that changed the Dugard's life. Finally, 18 years later, Jaycee was found and kidnappers Phillip and Nancy Garrido arrested. This story became very popular amongst our society due to the duration of the event. Most people thought this little girl was by now dead, but little did they know that she was being held captive only 2 hours away from her home. After watching her interview on ABC channel, Jaycee captivated me and I could not stop thinking about her story. Consequently, I decided to pick up her book and give it a chance. Although the reviews said that the book was very graphic, I thought it was not so bad. It was very sad and there were a few parts where I felt disgusted, but overall it was a great book that showed how a little girl, who turned into a woman and mother, survived incredible circumstances. For those who are interested in cases like this one, this book is good for knowledge and to be more attentive to what happens in real life. One can only hope that Jaycee is able to reconstruct her life and live without fear while enjoying the good things that will come her way.
