“A Stolen Life” is a memoir of Jaycee Dugard’s life in captivity for 18 years. She was kidnapped at age eleven and forced to lived in harsh conditions until age 29. Her captors physically and verbally abused Jaycee. She gave birth to two children and she wasn’t even allowed to say her own name for almost two decades. This book is a powerful story of survival and new beginnings. I loved this book; it opened my eyes to so many things. I really recommend this, but warning: you will cry.
