Madora was your typical seventeen year old with a messed up family life. Her dad committed suicide leaving her mom and herself to pick up the pieces. But Madora was headed for major trouble when she hooked up with another girl who liked to party. When she found herself in a situation with drugs and biker men, Willis was her saviour. He treated her like a queen, and ended up taking her away from all the bad in the world.

Madora lives with Willis for five years in an isolated area in a small house, her only friend pit bull puppy Foo. Then Willis kidnaps a pregnant teenager and tells Madora he is just helping her get on the right path. He claims that he is saving her life, as he keeps her imprisoned in a trailer behind the house. But after the baby is born, something inside Madora changes. Now she is torn between her love for Willis and her sense of right and wrong. And her puppy Foo has inadvertently brought company, twelve year old Django who has opened her eyes wider. She must face the truth of what her life has become and how she needs to change.

Little Girl Gone is a totally captivating, unbelievable story about human nature bent the wrong way and how sick some people can be to achieve their wants and needs. It also takes us on a journey with a girl who is afraid, and brainwashed into thinking she can't go back home. This is a book that you will stay up all night reading and that will stay with you long after you are finished.
