Giveaway for Girl Stolen - countdown to one million

Today's the day! Girl, Stolen has just released.

And according to Statcounter, I'm just 3,000-ish clicks away from having one million page loads for my blog. To celebrate, I’m doing a bunch of giveaways. See them all here: http://aprilhenry.livejournal.com/tag/giveaways .

About the book
Sixteen year-old Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of a car while her mom fills her prescription at the pharmacy. Before Cheyenne realizes what's happening, their car is being stolen--with her inside! Griffin hadn’t meant to kidnap Cheyenne, all he needed to do was steal a car for the others. But once Griffin's dad finds out that Cheyenne’s father is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes—now there’s a reason to keep her. What Griffin doesn’t know is that Cheyenne is not only sick with pneumonia, she is blind. How will Cheyenne survive this nightmare, and if she does, at what price?

Real-life inspiration
I saw a story on the Portland local news that begins pretty much the way Girl, Stolen begins. Blind girl, back of the car, mom leaves keys in car while she goes to run errands, guy steals car. In real life, the thief forced her out of the car a few blocks later. But I thought "What if he panicked and kept driving?"

What you can win
A signed first-edition hardcover.
