Living Dead Girl

Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott

Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn’t know how lucky I was.

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 Review:

"Alice" was taken by Ray when she was only 10 years old. Since then, Ray has tormented her in unimaginable ways. When Ray tells her he wants to take someone younger, "Alice" will do whatever it takes to make that happen, even if it means helping him kidnap a young girl. Because she has a plan. She is going to live.

LIVING DEAD GIRL by Elizabeth Scott is a very short book, but not at all light- so be prepared. Ray is a psycho perv who finds joy in tormenting "Alice." This was a great book from the perspective of the victim. We got to feel her fear and emotions, which really came across. The setting is actually quite common, a run down apartment building, full of innocent children. I think that's what makes this book even more creepy- it happens. The whole time I was reading this I could not stop thinking about Jaycee Dugard and how this could be exactly what she was feeling. Kidnapped by a perv, trapped, no one to tell for fear of retaliation against your family. That's so scary! This book was just so real and frightening! Elizabeth Scott did such an outstanding job with this one and I highly recommend it.
