Count All Her Bones

Me when a new April Henry book comes out:


Me when I found out this was a sequel to Girl Stolen:


If you haven't read Girl Stolen yet, just stop reading and do that first.  It won't take you long.  If you have read Girl Stolen, you are probably just as excited as I am!

Cheyenne survived a harrowing ordeal when she was kidnapped, and now her father and stepmother are more protective than ever.  She has her own live-in bodyguard and self-defense instructor, Jaydra, who goes pretty much everywhere with Cheyenne and takes every opportunity to test her self-defense skills.

Griffin is testifying against his father in the trial which doesn't sit too well with Roy and his half-brother Dwayne.  Griffin has been living with his mother's sister since the kidnapping, but it hasn't exactly been a perfect life.  He is still struggling in school because of his dyslexia, and his anxiety over the upcoming trial doesn't help.  He wants to talk to Cheyenne.  He misses her so much, but he wants to honor her wishes.

When Cheyenne told Griffin they couldn't be in contact, she thought it was for the best, but now she regrets that decision.  When he contacts her on Facebook, she is thrilled.

Meanwhile, Roy knows that if Griffin testifies, he will lose.  He and Dwayne devise a plot to get Griffin and Cheyenne out of the picture, maybe permanently.

Cheyenne is an even stronger character in this book with her newly acquired martial arts skills and some cool tech designed to aid the blind, and April Henry fans will race through this sequel to discover her fate.  Recommended!
