Madora was seventeen, headed for trouble with drugs and men, when Willis rescued her. Fearful of the world and alienated from family and friends, she ran away with him and for five years they have lived alone, in near isolation. But after Willis kidnaps a pregnant teenager and imprisons her in a trailer behind the house, Madora is torn between her love for him and her sense of right and wrong. When a pit bull puppy named Foo brings into Madora's world another unexpected person--Django Jones, a brilliant but troubled twelve-year-old boy--she's forced to face the truth of what her life has become.

An intensely emotional and provocative story, Little Girl Gone explores the secret hopes and fears that drive good people to do dangerous things . . . and the courage it takes to make things right.

Don't judge a book by its cover. At first I thought that this was a YA novel wrongly shelved with the new adult fiction. Wrong. Though the human protagonists are young adults, the theme of captivity is very adult and sadly contemporary....think Stockholm Syndrome.
I dropped all my other reading in favor of this book and plan to buy a copy for my personal library.
