Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott




Summary: When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends -- her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.


Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.


This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.













My Thoughts: Elizabeth has done it again! She needs to write faster though because I'm almost through all of her books and I want more dangit! We are introduced to Alice and the details surrounding her abduction. She was only 10 when she was taken by Ray and she was only his second victim. He tells her he loves her and that this is the way its supposed to be, she belongs to him. If she runs away, he'll go hurt her family. She longs to get away from him, far far away. She is tired of everything he puts her through. This book is a quick devastating read. It is heartbreaking in so many ways because the fact of the matter is, this happens in real life. Kids get abducted, kids get abused, kids get hurt. Its just not right!!! I could totally feel for Alice and there were a few times during the story I wanted to run away for Alice! Ray starts looking for a new "girl" with Alice, and Alice fears her time has come to an end. She's 15 now and not what he is "looking" for. Even though this book is heartbreaking, it still needs to be read! So go get yourself a copy today from amazon HERE and read it to find out what happens to Alice.

Overall: Heartbreaking, emotional, but a great story. This book is realistic and you will be sucked right into Alice's life. You will feel what she feels, think what she thinks, long for what she longs for.

Cover: Its a cool cover. I like the dress and the leaves in the background.
