Flaky Fingernails....

Finished book #11.  Don't you just love the cover?  I can't tell if her fingernails are shiny or if the paint is flaking off...I like to think the latter because that is what my nails look like quite often:)

Girl, Stolen by April Henry
Sixteen-year-old Cheyenne has just learned that she has pneumonia.  Her stepmom stops at the local pharmacy to pick up some medicine while Cheyenne stays in the car.  The car is stolen...with Cheyenne in it.  She is in a bad situation, but what makes it worse is....she is legally blind.
Griffin, the boy driving the car, realizes what he has done, but it is too late to turn back. He takes the car, with Cheyenne in it, to his father, Roy's, house.  Learning that Cheyenne is the daughter of a wealthy businessman,  Roy demands a large sum of money as ransom.  While held captive, Cheyenne forms a relationship with Griffin and tries to convince him to release her.  Will he let her go?  Will Roy kill her once he gets his money?

This was a pretty good novel...fast-paced and easy to follow.  It reminded me a little of Stolen by Lucy Christopher, but it wasn't near as creepy.
