{Book Club Friday}: A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard

It is Book Club Friday again and I am linking up with Blonde, Undercover Blonde. This link up is every Friday and you can review any book that you like. So - head on over and find some great books to add to your list.
Today I am reviewing A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard.
Here is what Amazon says about the book:
When Jaycee Dugard was eleven years old, she was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. She was missing for more than eighteen years, held captive by Phillip Craig and Nancy Garrido, and gave birth to two daughters during her imprisonment. On August 26, 2009, Garrido showed up for a meeting with his parole officer; he brought Jaycee, her daughters, and his wife Nancy with him. Their unusual behavior raised suspicions and an investigation revealed the tent behind the Garridos’ home where Jaycee had been living for nearly two decades.
A Stolen Life was written by Jaycee herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, compelling narrative, she opens up about what she experienced—and offers an extraordinary account of courage and resilience.

I wanted to read this book but I wanted to wait until I thought that I was ready.  I am not sure that you are ever ready for it though.  Jaycee tells her story in a very vivid and descriptive manner.  She doesn't sugar coat anything and tells you how she felt about the things that happened.
She is an amazing person and tells the story her way.
