Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446535796, Paperback)Madora was seventeen, headed for trouble with drugs and men, when Willis rescued her. Fearful of the world and alienated from family and friends, she ran away with him and for five years they have lived alone, in near isolation. But after Willis kidnaps a pregnant teenager and imprisons her in a trailer behind the house, Madora is torn between her love for him and her sense of right and wrong. When a pit bull puppy named Foo brings into Madora's world another unexpected person--Django Jones, a brilliant but troubled twelve-year-old boy--she's forced to face the truth of what her life has become.
An intensely emotional and provocative story, Little Girl Gone explores the secret hopes and fears that drive good people to do dangerous things . . . and the courage it takes to make things right.

The case of a missing teenage girl profoundly impacts the lives of two people: Madora, the emotionally starved girlfriend in a complicated relationship with the kidnapper, and Django, the twelve-year-old boy who discovers the whereabouts of the teenager and plots to free both her and the kidnapper's girlfriend. Madora has lived with Willis for 5 years after running away from home with him when she was 17. She tells herself she loves Willis, but time and events have tarnished his image. When he kidnaps a pregnant teenager and keeps her hidden, Madora begins to question why she stands by a man so morally reprehensible. Django comes into her life after following home one of the dogs she has rescued. The boy lost his parents in an accident and is living with his aunt who doesn't want him. Through their unlikely friendship, Madora learns to believe in herself and gather the strength to stand on her own; and Django gains a family in an unexpected place.
