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.

    Comments about Living Dead Girl:

    Such a haunting story! Living Dead Girl is one of those books that when you finish reading, you look and your world view has shifted ever so slightly. Alice is the person we all have inside, the one who places self preservation above all else - even a little girl's integrity and life. The abuse of Ray has reduced Alice to a young woman who barely feels real. Her flashbacks to her 'other' life and the visions she sees for herself reveal how little it takes for people to turn inside themselves. Alice's willingness to find another little girl to satisfy Ray's paedophilia and her shattered self respect are enthralling aspects of the novel.

    Comment on this review

    "A haunting story of an abducted girl you'll be desperate and helpless to save; her captor so disturbing, so menacing, you'll want to claw the pages from this book and shred them. Brava to Elizabeth Scott for creating such an intense, real, and perfectly painful story of terror, not without hope. "Living Dead Girl" is impossible to ignore." -- Lisa McMann, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Wake"
