She goes undercover to try to save them and discovers both Hollister’s army and a secret Resistance. Desperate to save her family, Eliza is falling in love with a young man named Wesley and trying to keep away from Hollister.

Girl, Stolen by April Henry

A book review by Faith Thompson

 

Cheyenne was just going to stay in the back of the car while her stepmom ran into the drugstore to pick up a prescription for Cheyenne’s pneumonia. Cheyenne is blind and left her guide dog at home, which turns out to be a mistake — a big mistake.

Griffin is the son of a car thief and a criminal. When he sees a Cadillac sitting running in the parking lot with no one in it, he can’t resist. What he doesn’t realize is that the daughter of Nike’s president is in the back of the car.

Cheyenne finds herself being held prisoner, desperately sick and desperate to escape. And for the first time, Griffin is caring for someone other than himself. But will that be enough to get Cheyenne out before it’s too late?
