Cheyenne, a blind sixteen year-old, is kidnapped and held for ransom; she must outwit her captors to get out alive.

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?

Prepare yourself for a fast-paced and hard-edged thriller full of nail-biting suspense.

        this was another great book from april henry. to be honest, it is a crazy thriller, and not extremely scary to read about. but if i was sick, blind, and being kidnapped, i would be scared out of my mind.

          I give this book a five out of five stars. It was a great book that always left me wanting to keep reading. Some parts of the book were so good my heart would start to race and I just couldn't put the book down.

                    This is a really good book I recommend this for young adults. This book is a mystery book and I'm sure that you would like it here is some information about this book: Cheyenne realizes she is being kidnapped and Cheyenne can't see they guy who is kidnapping her or where they are going because for the last 3 years Cheyenne has been blind.
