"If there was ever a true-life drama tailor-made for a celluloid adaptation, it's this one."
-Matthew Singer, VCReporter
In the privileged neighborhoods of Southern California, bored teenagers search for their next thrill-totally unaware of the dangers of living life without consequences. When pot dealer Mickey Youngblood kidnaps the kid brother of his hated nemesis, everyone's fate becomes sealed. Youngblood convinces his gang to hold young Bobby Leblanc "for ransom," but Bobby gets caught up in their world of drinking, drugs, and partying. Everyone forgets Bobby is a hostage-until the party turns bad and the rogue crew must face the tragic conclusion they never saw coming.
Based on a true story still being played out in the California criminal court system and captivating nationwide audiences, author and screenwriter Michael Mehas brings us Stolen Boy, a gripping novel resulting from his unprecedented research and access to confidential case files.
