Girl, Stolen by April Henry A realistic fiction novel Prezi by Becca Parker and Meckenzie Yeager http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7906105-girl-stolen Summary Ten Reasons You Should Read It Theme Personal Reviews Becca: Meckenzie: The theme of the book Girl, Stolen, by April Henry, is that nothing can hold you back. The main character, Cheyenne Wilder, went blind in an accident when she was thirteen. Throughout the time she needed to adjust to her new life, she felt as though her blindness now held her back. Her blindness presented her with new difficulties, and this discouraged her so much that she went through life feeling as though she could now never accomplish anything because she was blind. One recurring thought of hers throughout the book is the fact that she will never be able to drive a car. After she is kidnapped, her whole world changes. She realizes that she is the only person who can get herself out of the dangerous situation, alive and in one piece. Throughout the book, she is constantly challenged to do things she never thought were possible because she was blind. For those reasons, the theme of the book is that nothing can hold you back. Girl, Stolen by April Henry is a great book! It was the kind of book that you had to read in one sitting. I loved it! I think many other people will and do love it. You should read it. When I read Girl, Stolen, I could not put the book down. It was very fast-paced, and the action started right off the bat. I was completely wrapped in the character's story and had to keep reading to find out how it ended. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone! It is very action-packed
