Camden, NJ, 1948. When 11 year-old Sally Horner steals a notebook from the local Woolworth's, she has no way of knowing that 52 year-old Frank LaSalle, fresh out of prison, is watching her, preparing to make his move. Accosting her outside the store, Frank convinces Sally that he's an FBI agent who can have her arrested in a minute--unless she does as he says. This chilling novel traces the next two harrowing years as Frank mentally and physically assaults Sally as the two of them travel westward from Camden to San Jose, forever altering not only her life, but the lives of her family, friends, and those she meets along the way. Based on the experiences of real-life kidnapping victim Sally Horner and her captor, whose story shocked the nation and inspired Vladimir Nabokov to write his controversial and iconic Lolita, this heart-pounding story by award-winning author T. Greenwood at last gives a voice to Sally herself.… (mais)

I had no idea that this was based on a true story. This was so sad. I don’t want to give away too much, but I couldn’t put this one down. ( )

Sally Horner, the daughter of a single mother, is a lonely 5th grader who is tasked with shoplifting as her initiation into to a group of girls. She reluctantly agrees, and is observed by a man who identifies himself as FBI agent who must arrest her for shoplifting a notebook. Sally is terrified and hates to think what disappointment this will cause her over-worked, physically frail mother. The man, Frank LaSalle, meets with Sally after school, and tells her he has to escort her to the courthouse to face a judge. What fifth grader would not believe him? Once Sally is bound to him by guilt, he then poses as the father of Sally’s classmate and convinces her gullible mother that he is going to take her on a family vacation in Atlantic City. Thus begins a horrifying time when the author realistically imagines the abuse Sally suffered, and is forced by LaSalle to take on the name Florence Fogg when they move to Baltimore and then across the country for two years.

This story is all the more heartbreaking because it is based on the real life of Sally Horner, the inspiration for Nabokov’s Lolita. There are monsters masquerading as humans who prey on the most vulnerable and innocent. A judge in this factionalized version referred to Frank during the trial as a “moral leper.” How apt. I served on juvenile court panels that reviewed the cases of children in foster care. The most damaged, often irredeemably, are these children whose innocence has been stolen and their trust destroyed. Even hardened criminals in prison revile these monsters, which is why they are not placed in the general prison population. I am convinced that all convicted pedophiles should be transported to an island surrounded by shark-infested waters to either survive or not. ( )

Based on the true story of the 1948 kidnapping of 11 year-old Sally Horner, this fictionalized story tears at the heart strings. Sally longs to be included with the other girls at school. So much so, that she breaks the law and finds herself in hot water with a man who says he is an FBI agent. What Sally does not know is that convicted criminal Frank LaSalle has set his sights on her.
Greenwood has created a plausible narrative for a real-life case that has remained cloaked in mystery. The story is heartbreaking and gut-wrenching at times, but readers are kept riveted to Sally's fate. It is impossible to look away. ( )

I loved this book. I listened to the Audible version, narrated flawlessly by Therese Plummer. It was just beautifully written, each lyrical word in its perfect place. I became so emotionally involved with Sally that there were times during the last third of the book I ended up sobbing and gasping like a baby. T. Greenwood has captured all the beauty that she could find in retelling this anguished portrait of a little girl who had to bear so much pain. ( )
