Product Overview

"Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.

Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.

Once upon a time, I didn''t know how lucky I was."

When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends -- her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.

Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.

This is Alice''s story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.

Praise
"Avoiding the prurience that would make this simply genre horror, this is searing and heartbreaking, a story of unimaginable human suffering imagined and conveyed in a way that may prod readers to consider other human pain that we daily blot out. Even readers who come for some movie-esque drama will find themselves shaken by their time in Alice's world."
"A thoroughly unpleasant but magnetic read, Scott's novel is repellent in exact proportion to the brilliance of its execution."
From the Publisher
Editors Note After being abducted and treated with severe abuse for five years by her kidnapper, Alice's only wish is that she would just die, but when Ray orders her to help him seize a new girl to add to his collection, Alice remembers the girl she once was and so must do what she knows is right in her heart.
Annotation Profoundly disturbing, sparingly well-written, and stunningly painful, LIVING DEAD GIRL is the story of Alice, a 15-year-old who has been repeatedly raped, starved, and victimized in every way possible since she was 10 by her sadistic kidnapper, Ray. Told in short, sharp chapters, Alice (re-named by Ray after his previous victim) tells her story and reveals how much damage Ray has done with quiet pathos. Kept his prisoner by never-ending fear and self-loathing, Alice talks frankly about how people all around her know something is wrong but do nothing. The idea for this powerful story, which surely will speak to anyone who picks up this book, came to author Elizabeth Scott in a series of recurring dreams that begged to be written down.
