"Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared. Once upon a time, my name was not Alice. Once upon a time, I didn't know how lucky I was. When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends: her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over. Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her. This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget"--Book flap.

This book was about a little girl who at a young age was taken from her school field trip by a pedophile who likes younger girls. He rapes her and forces her to become his image of a perfect little girl. This book will haunt you.

read this in one sitting, quite disturbing, but not too graphic. not sure why it is considered a Young Adult book, the subject matter is very adult. I choose the happy ending.

A stark look at a young girl’s life after she has been abducted by a pedophile. She lives a life of terror and abuse that is very hard to read about. I think the author deserves kudos for delivering such a honest look at this brutal subject but this was at times a very distrubing read.

This books ending is very sad. Although she never has to go through anything horid again, she shouldn't have died. She should have gone and saw her family before she died.

At first I thought this was a book about zombies. The title and even the blurb on the back sound like it could be zombies! But Living Dead Girl is actually about a little girl who was abducted while on a field trip when she was 10 years old, and who after five years of sexual and physical abuse by her kidnapper is completely numb inside, a living dead girl.

I tore through this short young adult novel in one sitting. Should young teenage girls tear through it? Yikes. It could potentially save lives, but there are some seriously disturbing sexual images in this story.

The ending is masterful but ambiguous, and I choose to believe that it’s a happy ending.

This book is addictive. I loved every second of it. It was so sad and disturbing. I read it in the wee hours of the night. It gave me nightmares but sort of in a good way. I love Elizabeth Scott's writing.

Although this book had a lot of grammatical errors some chapters were only one page long,this book was very good, discriptive and gripping.

Then he is silent, a dark heavy weight on top of me. Pressing me down into the ground. Where all things must go. Where we one day will all be. Death to make the living. (p167)
