Living Dead Girl
By: Elizabeth Scott
When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends-her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure pain. She waited for the nightmare to be all 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 then death in mind for her.

My Rating: 4/5
This story was so extremely sad. It was difficult to read at times just because of what Alice had to endure on a daily bases. You want to reach out, to save her even though such a thing isn't really possible. I felt horribly for her throughout the entire novel, always wondering what her life would have been like if she hadn't been taken by Ray five years prior. Elizabeth Scott did a really wonderful job with this book. It's very different from her other novels but I commend her for straying and having the courage to write such a novel, to depict such a horrible situation. This must have been difficult to write and I praise her for that. A haunting story.
