Living Dead Girl


Item Details

"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"--Book flap.

read this in one sitting, quite disturbing, but not too graphic. not sure why it is considered a Young Adult book, the subject matter is very adult. I choose the happy ending.

A stark look at a young girl’s life after she has been abducted by a pedophile. She lives a life of terror and abuse that is very hard to read about. I think the author deserves kudos for delivering such a honest look at this brutal subject but this was at times a very distrubing read.

This books ending is very sad. Although she never has to go through anything horid again, she shouldn't have died. She should have gone and saw her family before she died.

At first I thought this was a book about zombies. The title and even the blurb on the back sound like it could be zombies! But Living Dead Girl is actually about a little girl who was abducted while on a field trip when she was 10 years old, and who after five years of sexual and physical abuse by her kidnapper is completely numb inside, a living dead girl. I tore through this short young adult novel in one sitting. Should young teenage girls tear through it? Yikes. It could potentially save lives, but there are some seriously disturbing sexual images in this story. The ending is masterful but ambiguous, and I choose to believe that it’s a happy ending.

This book is addictive. I loved every second of it. It was so sad and disturbing. I read it in the wee hours of the night. It gave me nightmares but sort of in a good way. I love Elizabeth Scott's writing.

Although this book had a lot of grammatical errors some chapters were only one page long,this book was very good, discriptive and gripping.

This book took my breath away after I started the first page I couldn't stop reading such an addictive book.

I read this book between 11pm and 2am and came out with my head space quite disturbed. I looked for an explanation or reason for the author to have written it and all she gave in the front were thanks to all the people who encouraged and helped her to publish it. I was actually angry at the author because I didn't know why she had written it. I'm guessing I got too much into the characters way of thinking as my feelings and thoughts felt deadened when I finished the book. After rereading the last couple of chapters in the morning (after sleeping, dreaming, and finally discussing my feeling about the book with my husband in the middle of the night) I feel a little better about the book but still have no reason for why the book was written. I understand the reasoning behind books that discuss rape and the aftermath but come to no reason for this book to have been written; it doesn't give anything to the reader or to society that I can find or understand.

Then he is silent, a dark heavy weight on top of me. Pressing me down into the ground. Where all things must go. Where we one day will all be. Death to make the living. (p167)
