Reviews This quarter I read A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard. It was very heartbreaking and so inspirational! Jaycee was a regular elementary student that had a very wonderful family. One day the unthinkable happened, she was walking to the bus stop when she felt a sharp pain in the side. The next thing she know she is tied up laying in a back of a car. One of the first things she saw was a taser laying on top of the middle console. That when she knew that she has been captured. Jaycee was held captive for 18 years during her capture she had two daughters A and C. I thought this book was very good I gave it 5 stars because I think it would take a lot to come out like she did especially with her situation. The superhero journey ties in this story by The Ordinary world,The Call To Adventure The Reward. Jaycee was very uncomforable with her situation because she was way with her family, she was with a awful old man, and she never have been exposed to what she exposed to when she was held captive. The Ordinary World is easily tied into that A Stolen Life. She was very uneasy with her captor and she had a additude with him. But with his girlfriend she was very kind to her because the girlfriend knew what was happening to her body and she connected with her. She is always talking about if she was back home what she would've done or she wondered how her family was doing. She also wondered if people back home forgot about her or if they were still looking for her. The call to adventure was exicting and will have you at the edge of your seat. One night after one of the captors runs he leaves the door unlocked she was devising up a plan to escape. But unfortunantly she was brain washed in to staying there. She was scared that if she would of left she would of never make it to where parents house. Or a even worse thought was if she were to get caught god only knows what her captors would of done. Also her captor was on probabtion and so random checks where always coming so sometimes she would have to say she was a realtive visting from out of town. The reward for Jaycee was inspirational because after 18 years of living in basically hell someone reconized her. cops pulled the captors fan over and arrested him. Then they took Jaycee in for questioning. "What's your name" the would ask her. But she would always reply with a fake name. Fanilly the investgator said "What's your name Jaycee" she fanilly broke down and told the whole story. she was reuntied with her family and now is living a happy wonderful life with her mom sister step dad and her two daughers. This book was really inspirational and heartbreaking but it was so good you couldn't put your book down. It also had some real deep meaning to it and i would recommned it to anybody. It really ties intoOrdinary world,The Call To Adventure The Reward.
This book is incredible. It is brave and unflinching. If you liked The Lovely Bones or A Child Called It, you will probably enjoy this book (but be warned - it is a true story about a child around your age who is abducted at the age of eleven and remained missing for eighteen years). Jaycee Lee Dugard is a regular kid - shy and self-conscious. One fateful June morning, she is walking to her South Tahoe, California bus stop when she is halted by two strangers in a car who stun-gun her and throw her into the backseat of their car. Her stepfather, witnessing the kidnap, chases the car on a bicycle, but the car is too fast. He can't catch it, nor can he read the license plate number as the car leaves him in a trail of dust.
Hours later, Jaycee wakes up. And no single second of the next eighteen years will be anything less than a complete nightmare. Note: Jaycee Lee Dugard is the author of this book, and it was written after her and her two teenaged daughters' unexpected rescue in 2009. She is a true inspiration.
This book was full of emotions, from happiness, anger, fear, and the unknown. She he was kidnapped from a man who was a child molester. He was in prison for many year for it. Was on probation for it and for 18 years this girl was gone. Her mother next gave up faith in her. She knew she was still alive. The craziest part she was just 45 minutes away from the place she knew was home. Jaycee was forced to be an adult at a very young age. She became a mother and was forced to be her own children's sister. She was a disgusting, awful man. He made her do things at a young age that most children don't ever think about or do until they are in there teens. A sound proof room, hand cuffed to a pole. Did what he wanted her to or he would beat her. Never saw the outside world for years. The man had a wife that apparently could not have kids. Got Jaycee pregnant, not once but twice. He would watch videos on tv on how to give birth, read books, go to the hospital and pretend to he was an intern and watch the doctors give birth. He did it all. He delivered the life's of his two children. His wife became jealous of the girl, so she became the â€œmotherâ€? of the two young-ins. Jaycee was forced to become the sister of her own children. I do not understand how someone could do so much horrible things to one girl. He was on probation and the P.O came to his house once a month and never did they go into the backyard to see what was wrong with this picture. People told them they could hear little girls in the back yard. But they would only check the house.
