From goodreads.com:I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book. The cover was interesting and the summary seemed different than anything I had read.
Sixteen year-old Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of a car while her mom fills her prescription at the pharmacy. Before Cheyenne realizes what's happening, their car is being stolen--with her inside! Griffin hadn’t meant to kidnap Cheyenne, all he needed to do was steal a car for the others. But once Griffin's dad finds out that Cheyenne’s father is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes—now there’s a reason to keep her. What Griffin doesn’t know is that Cheyenne is not only sick with pneumonia, she is blind. How will Cheyenne survive this nightmare, and if she does, at what price?
The story starts with Griffin stealing the car and Cheyenne in it. There is no waiting for the big event to happen, it opens the story. I felt good about the first few chapters because it seemed to be moving right along. Once they get to their "destination" though I found myself skipping pages and skimming others. The story quickly lost my interest and never got it back.
All of the characters were very bland. I didn't feel connected to any of them and rarely felt any sympathy or compassion for them. Cheyenne was the most interesting though. She was smart and manipulative. Even so, she wasn't a very well developed character.
Overall this book was (excuse my lack of words) bland.
Rating: 2.5 stars / 5 stars
