School Library Journal really, really likes Girl, Stolen

I don't think I've ever had a book (and this is my 10th) with stronger reviews than Girl, Stolen. One secret is that the book was finished and put aside for about a year while other stuff happened. By the time I came back to it, I could revise it with perfect clarity.

Will this curb my legendary impatience? My desire to call a book finished as soon as I finish the first draft?


Anyway, School Library Journal says, "The novel is a nail-biter with an unforgettable protagonist who smartly and bravely turns her weakness, and her captors’ underestimation of her capabilities, into an advantage. Henry illuminates the teen’s predicament using all of her intact senses, making every touch, sniff, and breath palpable. Cheyenne ’s growing sympathy for Griffin , who becomes her protector, adds layers of complexity to this thriller, especially when she faces leaving him injured in the woods or slowing her own escape by saving him. Readers will be hard-pressed to put this one down before its heart-pounding conclusion."
