4 1/2 STARS ACTUALLY!  First off I am going to put a definition here :  Stockholm syndrome noun Psychiatry. an emotional attachment to a captor formed by a hostage as a result of continuous stress, dependence,and a need to cooperate for survival. Origin:   after an incident in Stockholm in 1973, during which a bank employee became romantically attached to arobber who held her hostage (super creepy syndrome)!!!! Holy cow....This book was so fantastic.  It kept me engaged from the beginning till the end, and I cannot finish the second one fast enough.  I bought this on iTunes, and my daughter, niece and started listening to this book while I was driving.  When we were on out way home we almost finished it, and I had to come home and listen to the rest right away. I have heard of Stockholm Syndrome, but listening to a story about it creeped me out.  I was constantly yelling at the book saying "girl get your head on straight"!  hehe.  It was so dark and twisty I loved it. Naomi is kidnapped one night while walking home from her boyfriends house.  When she wakes her captures try to find out what she saw that night when she knew when she was walking through the park.   Naomi is a character that makes my heart brake.  She feels like her parents don't care about her.  She had a boyfriend that is my WORST nightmare as a mother.  I am telling you, if my daughters boyfriend ever hit her, I would literally have to be restrained from causing bodily harm back.  She just had a rough life.   At first I thought it was all her bad attitude until she got captured.  Then you come to realize how alone she was in in her family.  She was an only child but felt as though her parents could care less about her.  It was so sad. Naomi's captured treated her well, most of the time, and this is when it gets super creepy for me.  I cannot ever imagine falling in love with someone who took me.  I guess when you live that way for a while, you become familiar with your captures.  Still I scared me.....I am a mother, and this book scared me.  I really loved this book. I have a love/hate relationship with the ending :).....heheheh  I CANNNNNNOT wait to read the second book.   My ONLY complaint about this book was the narrator.  I feel that this book was a highly emotional book, with some seriously intense scenes, but the narrator never sounded like she was trying to make the kidnapping, and other things "real".  She was a little too nonchalant in her reading.  Very monotone.  Having said that, the story itself kept me listening.  It was such an interesting book!!!!   Michelle D. Argyle is an amazing writer.  She pulled me in right away.  Argyles writing is beautiful.  How she came up with this idea is beyond me.  I have a daughter going to college soon, and now I REALLY don't want her to leave ;).  This was my first Michelle D. Argyle book, but I have already bought the second book, and then just purchased If I Forget You, and Cinders  by Argyle.  I cannot wait to read them all! FYI, as of this moment Cinders is free on Amazon.  You should pick it up!
