AUTHOR: Liz Coley

PUBLISHER: HarperCollins Katherine Tegen Books, 2013

Pretty girl
13 when she
went missing
to her family
to her friends
to the world
but still missing
her self

In Liz Coley's alarming and fascinating psychological mystery, sixteen-year-old Angie Chapman must piece together the story of her kidnapping and abuse. Pretty Girl-13 is a disturbing and ultimately empowering page-turner about accepting our whole selves, and the healing power of courage, hope, and love.
