Synopsis

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.

Scott, best known for such chick-lit pleasers as Bloom (2008), breaks the mold with this harrowing tale of abuse leavened only by lyric writing à la Adam Rapp (33 Snowfish, 2003, etc.).

I would would argue the case that it may be a little too much for younger teenagers I think this book would goes along way to open the eyes of teenagers to the dangerous present in society that they ought to be made aware of.

The Trades

Elizabeth Scott's Living Dead Girl instantly goes for the throat, never letting go, choking the reader as surely as the story's villain, Ray, chokes and otherwise abuses his victim.
