"The book successfully stays what it intends to be -- a page-turner, and Henry isn't afraid to realistically threaten her characters, kill them off and even gray-scale their personalities and actions. But more importantly, the reader is present at that perfect moment when a boy chooses completely opposite of his father even though he knows that will mean the end of life as he understands it. And for a lot of still more important reasons, for both female and male readers, this book allows the title girl to unapologetically be her own rescuer -- because she's smart, strong and collected."

and TeensReadToo.com gave it five stars and said:
"Author April Henry has created quite a thriller guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats. GIRL,
STOLEN is filled with plenty of excitement and suspense. There is the obvious complication of Cheyenne's
blindness and the added difficulty of her physical illness and her immediate need for antibiotics. Those problems alone would be enough for most authors, but Henry adds other creative plot twists that will keep readers on their toes. GIRL, STOLEN is a must-read for action and adventure fans."
