Her 20/20 interview is what everyone remembers‚??Amanda describing the room where she was kept, the torn poster of TV heartthrob Chase Henry on the wall.

Now, years later, Amanda is struggling to live normally. Her friends have gone on to college, while she battles PTSD. She‚??s not getting any better, and she fears that if something doesn‚??t change soon she never will.

Six years ago, Chase Henry defied astronomical odds, won a coveted role on a new TV show, and was elevated to super-stardom. With it, came drugs, alcohol, arrests, and crazy spending sprees. Now he's sober and a Hollywood pariah, washed up at twenty-four.

The meeting is a disaster, but out of mutual desperation, Amanda and Chase strike a deal. What starts as a simple arrangement, though, rapidly becomes more complicated when they realize they need each other in more ways than one. But when the past resurfaces in a new threat, will they stand together or fall apart?

Amanda Grace has been kept in a basement for 738 days, assaulted in horrific manners when she is finally found and freed. Her only company besides her kidnapper was a picture of Chase Henry, rising actor.
The story skips ahead two years to where Amanda and her family are trying to get their lives back together. When Chase comes to the next town to film a movie, his publicist decides it would be a good idea to get the two of them together. Chase also needs help in his comeback so having Amanda hang around seems like a good idea.
I found the story a little slow at first, but by about halfway I was definitely hooked. The building relationship between these two flawed people and how they help each other is finely written. Amanda's family are also, each in their own way, interesting characters who add a lot to the story. I really enjoyed this YA thriller and was surprised at the ending (It was slightly different from what I predicted which made it better). ( )
