Description

A Stolen Life A raw and powerful memoir of Jaycee Lee Dugard's own story of being kidnapped as an 11-year-old and held captive for over 18 years

On 10 June 1991, eleven-year-old Jaycee Dugard was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in Tahoe, California.

It was the last her family and friends saw of her for over eighteen years.

On 26 August 2009, Dugard, her daughters, and Phillip Craig Garrido appeared in the office of her kidnapper's parole officer in California. Their unusual behaviour sparked an investigation that led to the positive identification of Jaycee Lee Dugard, living in a tent behind Garrido's home. During her time in captivity, at the age of fourteen and seventeen, she gave birth to two daughters, both fathered by Garrido.

Dugard's memoir is written by the 30-year-old herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, utterly honest and unflinching narrative, Jaycee opens up about what she experienced, including how she feels now, a year after being found.

Garrido and his wife Nancy have since pleaded guilty to their crimes.

    Read this heartbreaking story two years ago whilst on holiday. I couldn't put the book down. It's unimaginable what that poor girl went through. Very good read, however extremely upsetting.

    I whizzed through this book, very easy to read despite the horrific content in parts. Worth reading, interesting, sad but happy ending!

    No one will ever truly understand what she went through but she has given hope to other parents who's kids have been abducted! Truly remarkable that she maintained her strength and ability to continue each day being a fantastic mother.

    This book is not an easy read. And at times it's easy to detatch yourself and pretend its simply fictional I remember this story breaking as I am a similar age to Jaycee. I didn't read about it in the papers but I knew once I saw the book that I had to read it. It's shocking how monstrous some people in society can be. I can't begin to imagine any of the scenarios in real life as her story is too extreme to come to terms with I would simply like to wish her and her family strength and luck for the future It's hard to put some life experiences behind u but I can relate to her lack of hatred its too soul consuming to hate when they are others around to do that for you. Sometimes moving on is harder than hating. I wish you all the best for your futures
