The first work of its kind Jaycee Dugard s raw and powerful memoir, her own story of being kidnapped in 1991 and held captive for more than eighteen years. When Jaycee Dugard was eleven years old, she was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. She was missing for more than eighteen years, held captive by Phillip Craig and Nancy Garrido, and gave birth to two daughters during her imprisonment. On August 26, 2009, Garrido showed up for a meeting with his parole officer; he brought Jaycee, her daughters, and his wife Nancy with him. Their unusual behavior raised suspicions and an investigation revealed the tent behind the Garridos home where Jaycee had been living for nearly two decades. "A Stolen Life" is being written by Jaycee herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, compelling narrative, she opens up about what she experienced and offers an extraordinary account of courage and resilience."

I found this book to be very interesting in its account of the years of Jaycee Dugard's captivity. I have not finished it, as the reading became somewhat depressing for me. All that she went through at such a young age. I'm sure I will pick it up again at some point to finish out this story. The book is laid out in a chronological order starting with young Jaycee in her ordinary life. All that changes with her captivity that lasts 18 yrs. I wish the adult Jaycee and her daughters all the best.

How can one review this book?
Never have I read anything so heartbreaking about a young child who became a young woman under these circumstances.
This man is not a human being and i doubt the animal kingdom would let him in.
She did remain sane and says she has forgiven him. I do not think I could.
She has no doubt received some cleansing of her mind by putting it down on paper but protecting her children in the process.
It is a sad commentary but worth a read .
