Before “Alice” became Alice, she was a beautiful 10-year-old girl who had a mom and a dad, a nice little bedroom in a nice house, and a love for pretty lip gloss. She was abducted during a school field trip by a strange man who offered to bring her back to her classmates. She was never seen again.
Five years later, she is still with her abductor and she tells her story of sexual, physical, psychological and emotional abuse, and other horrific plans her abductor has in store for her.
This book has probably scarred me for life. It’s one of those books that will not leave you and make you feel like there’s a deadweight in your stomach. It’s dark, painful, heartbreaking, and plain horrifying, because there really are monsters who walk the earth and hurt innocent little children.
