    One thought on “A Mind Abducted”

    1. This was an alright read, but it didn't suck me in. Josie was an okay character, and I felt sorry for her for what she was going through. She annoyed me at the start though.This wasn't an awful read, but I didn't love it. It took a while for things to get going, but when they did, it still didn't suck me in. I'll probably read the second one to see what happens, but I doubt that it will be any better than this one.

    2. It's not always easy taking on the subject matter of a young girls abduction, but Corinne Leigh Donovan handled the subject matter with grace and dignity. Her story starts off with the day to day happenings of Josie, a young girl who is probably too smart and observant for her own good. She's sweet and responsible, and a good friend. When she gets abducted, her own is shattered, yet she refuses to stop fighting. The book shows us not only her point of view, but that of her mother's, too, and how [...]

    3. I am so glad I got this book for free, I would NOT recommend anyone paying for it. First off, this book is SO poorly edited. The author did not look over her spelling or structure at all. Quotation marks are the number one thing needing fixed as well as words that are wrong. The plot of the story isn't terrible, but it needs some work. I feel like the boy who was also kidnapped, his story was a bit jumbled. As well as the main girl's father and stepfather. Overall if the author would edit the st [...]

    4. I'm shocked that the reviews on are as good as they are. About 20 pages in, you forget that this girl is ten years old. She brushes off emotional and physical trauma like its nothing and says "okay, stranger-- lets get out of here!" With a LOT more detail, it could have been good. I guess that's what I get for getting a free book. The only thing that made it worthwhile was seeing the real love Eric actually had for her.

    5. This book had a lot of potential that just quickly fizzled out. The protagonist of the story was just not believable. As an adult, it's hard to adopt a child's personality to narrate a story and the author was just not able to successfully get there.

    6. "Contains Spoilers"A Mind Abducted is a great book if you are 13 or maybe even older than that! It teaches you a very valuable lesson on the reality of things and on life. This book has so many emotions going on that you cant help but to feel like you're in the book!I honestly felt close to Josie in the book because she is a teem that turned 13 recently. I loved her fight, and i wish that i had her personality, which is the thing that i loved the most about this book. One could say that she is t [...]

    7. This book has a promising premise, but poor execution. It took way too long to get to the main theme, and when it did, there was little emotion. It's short, and was free on . I've found some fabulous new authors through free Kindle offerings, but unfortunately this isn't one of them. Give this one a pass.

    8. 2.5 stars mind you i thought it was okay it doesn't mean I thought it was horrible or anything. Kay so this is likeCilantro most likely you are going to hate it or you are going to love it. Its a very specific type of tea. I read another psychological read sort of like this one where the POVs start to shift from who is captured, to a person looking for said captured person, and unfortunately I am super weird and i usually always end up skipping the parts about the person on the outside and i gru [...]

    9. This was a pretty good story. It was a fast paced, easy read for me. I did notice many grammatical errors, specifically involving the use of quotes, the lack there of. I didn't understand what suddenly made the popular girl, Lacey, want to start hanging out with Josie and Jessie? Josie seemed to be a somewhat smart kid for a 12/13. Yet, it was surprising how naive she was when the delivery guy got her into the truck to kidnap her. She may never have received a package herself but surely she'd se [...]

    10. Let me start by once again repeating I don't like 1st person narration. The 1st person point is to make the reader feel more connected to the character. However, I rarely find a believeable 1st person character, and this book was no exception. Josie has just turned 13, but acts and thinks like she's 16 yo or more. At a first read, her mom seems like a beaten wife, and her stepfather the wife beater.Josie develops a friendship with a popular girl, which I think the author wanted to use as a hook [...]

    11. I want a mind like Josie'sI have to confess that I didn't remember the blurb when I started reading the book and I'm glad that happened. It's so weird for me to read about kids, I usually find more interesting teens and older women but this book is great. This is the story of Josie and what happens to her the day she has special plans. I don't want to give up the plot, but I could feel something huge was coming. When it happened I was sad, scared, mad, I had a lot of feelings and that's somethin [...]

    12. Josie has just turned 13 and things seem to be going well. She is friends with the popular girl in school, things are going well for her at home, and then she is kidnapped. This is not one of the ransom kidnappings, this is the child abuse, sex slave kind of kidnapping. With the help of another victim she keeps focusing on how to get out of her situation.This is a very serious topic and I do think that it was handled well but having said that, there are parts that are very violent and will shock [...]

    13. I was given a copy of this book to review from BookRooster. This book should come with a warning. The author definitely painted a terrifying picture of what happens to kidnapped children, and since that news story in Cleveland, it's not too far-fetched. There were a few things about this book that confused me:1. If Josie was such a smart, follow-the-rules kind of girl, why did she get in the back of the truck with a strange man? At 13 she should have known better. No victim-blaming here, but if [...]

    14. The author has picked a good subject for a thriller, and the setup and eventually realized reasoning behind it are both chilling. After a somewhat meandering opening where we get to know our central character, things move very fast. Good for those who simply must finish the book in one sitting (I did because our power was out; no doubt sitting on my front porch in a quiet, darkened neighborhood with only my Kindle to light the dark added to my intrigue). Still, it felt a little too abrupt in the [...]

    15. This was a very emotional book about abduction. It gives us the point of view of both Josie and her mother. The subplot involving Josie father and stepfather also plays into the emotional impact of the story.Josie is one of the strongest, most determined thirteen-year-olds you can imagine. I think it might be just a bit of a stretch for some people to accept, however. Most children of that age would not cope as well with the situation she found herself facing.I still intend to read the next book [...]

    16. 'A Mind Abducted' is a quick read, but it will sure play on your emotions big time. The storyline is pretty much every parents worse nightmare. It was incredibly intense. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Josie is an incredible girl. She's wise beyond her years. Mason surprised me. What a hell to live through. I look forward to reading the next book to see how Josie and Mason/Jason come through. A great add to your tbr list.

    17. Meh . I got this as a free Kindle download. The story line seemed promising, but I thought there would be more to the psychological side of the story. Puzzling that the Josie is presented as so mature, yet she goes willingly into the "delivery" truck that had previously arose her suspicions. Fast, one day read.

    18. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The use of first person narrative in certain parts made me feel like I was inside Josie's world. Love the 'never give up spirit' she possessed at the young age of 13.

    19. I couldnt put this book down! I was captured by how a 13 year old girl could endure so much tragedy and pain and still manage to come out so determined to survive a situation like she did . If you like YA thiller this is the novella for you!

    20. This was a very fast read by an old friend/fellow author. The storyline was a bit dark, as with any story that tackles this subject, but I found myself pulled into the book right away. I will definitely recommend this one to others and will be checking out the books that follow.

    21. Good storyA bit dark wasn't expecting it to be about a 13yo girl but that's probably my fault for not reading the blurb before reading. I think this will be hard for a lot of people especially parents or survivors of abuse

    22. 故事线这么简单还一本写不完?真讨厌现在很多作者这种不管什么故事动不动就要抻好几本的臭毛病!另外不知道lacey在这本书里有什么作用?

    23. Great bookIt started off kind of slow but it was a great read. I read it in one day. A definite page turner.

    24. Fairly good story, had too much detail without a lot of depth or development. The beginning detail really seemed unnecessary to how the rest of the book played out. The last part was good though.

    25. Great debut novel. Fast read, took me one day. It kept me interested, never a dull moment. I cant wait to see what happens in the next book!

    26. AbductionThis book was a good read. It is more for younger adults. It was not a book that kept you wanting more. Abduction awareness is much needed today.

    27. Good story.This book held my interest right through. I couldn't imagine going through what the main characters had to endure. A god read.
