Publisher Description

An instant #1 New York Times bestseller—Jaycee Dugard’s raw and powerful memoir, her own story of being kidnapped in 1991 and held captive for more than eighteen years.

In the summer of June of 1991, I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother that loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen.

For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation.

On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I don’t think of myself as a victim, I simply survived an intolerable situation. A Stolen Life is my story—in my own words, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.

A stolen life

I have read this book a few times. But, the audiobook added another layer of personality. Getting to hear Jaycees true experience, in her voice, was so interesting.

There is nothing like listening first hand to the experience of a survivor. Jaycee and her girls have been through more than most of us have been through in a lifetime, during their time in captivity. Her strength and hope for the future is so inspiring.

I listen to a lot of true crime videos on YouTube, but none of them compare to hearing the actual thoughts of a survivor during her most brutal experiences in captivity.
