This was a really good book, but very heartbreaking. I always wanted to know the story of Jaycee Dugard, and it was written by her in her own words. What a strong girl!

In the summer of June of 1991, I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother that loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen.

For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation.

On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I don’t think of myself as a victim, I simply survived an intolerable situation.A Stolen Lifeis my story—in my own words, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.
