I found this one on my shelves at work. I'm thinking of reading it next. The cover captured me and the font along the spine. The cover image of the roped hands is repeated on the spine and on the back. It looks a little like Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott, the story of a girl who'd been abducted by a man when she was ten and was still with him at fifteen. It was a difficult, dark story, a little too short, but a good read.
Taken is published by Orca, and I've never read anything by the author. It also just came out for an early October release...Oh *researching* Norah McClintock wrote Dooley Takes The Fall. Of course, that's where I've heard the name. I haven't read that book either but I remember a lot of buzz about it on the blogs a few months back.
As the cover and title suggest, there's an abductor on the lose and Stephanie is taken after hearing about two other girls who have gone missing. Somehow she manages to escape her captor and run into the middle of the woods. She must survive the elements and keep running from this insane person, she's also haunted by what happened to the other girls who've been captured.
It looks like a powerful read. Here's a little teaser:
I was in some kind of a cabin. It was small and grimy. The wood floor was bare and cold. So were the walls. They hadn't been painted. The only thing on them was a calendar hanging on a nail. It was from a hardware store. The edges were curled. It was ten years out of date.
Whose cabin was this? Where was it? What was I doing here?
And why couldn't I move?
Because I was tied up.
Chilling. Looks good.
