Book description from GoodReads:
In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who 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 survived.
A Stolen Life is my story—in my own words, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.
This book was VERY intense. I knew it was written about her life while she was abducted, but I guess I didn't think it'd be as hard to read as it was. It was a great read, and I'm glad I picked it up. But just be prepared to be very disturbed by the things she went through. She's very detailed.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
