Still Missing

My goal is to read 100 books by the end of 2013.  I just finished book 1.

Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
Summary: Annie O'Sullivan was abducted and held captive in the mountains for a year.  This fiction novel is told entirely from Annie's point of view (each chapter is one session with her shrink) and covers both what happened in the mountains and her struggle to move forward with her life after she returns home.

I loved this book.  I forced myself to put it down so I wouldn't rush through it too quickly (also, the darn kids insisted on eating today), but I still read it in a day.  Since the story was told from Annie's point of view, finding things out at the same time she did made it very easy to feel the tension.  To avoid spoilers, I will simply say that the story development was amazing, and my heart was racing the entire time. 

Highly recommended.
