The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die
by April Henry

Cady, 16, wakes up on the floor of a cabin. Two of her fingernails have been yanked out. A man says, “Take her out back and finish her off.” Worst of all, she has total amnesia. To her shock, she discovers that she knows how to fight—she beats up her captor and flees, and what follows is 28 hours of outfoxing an unknown enemy who wants her, and apparently her family, dead. Cady’s accomplice is Ty, a McDonald’s cashier who risks his own skin to help her to safety.
