Escape was just the beginning.
Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison. Her daughter, Sky, has been a captive her whole life. But one day their captor leaves the dead bolt unlocked.
This is what happens next to Lily, to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter - and to her captor.
For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, Baby Doll is the most tense thriller you will listen to this year.

"Captur[es] the unique bond shared by identical twins." (Kirkus)
"What a compulsive read! A brilliant first novel that kept me transfixed and entertained until the very last page." (New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen)
This was an unexpected pleasure. Parts are dark and disturbing, but I ate it up. Initially, I thought I knew how things would turn out, but I am pleased to report I was wrong.
I enjoyed this book, I would not consider it a thriller but how family deals with trauma and relationship afterwards. LOVE the relationship between the twins.
LOVED IT!!!!!!! dropped my jaw!!!!!
I really enjoyed this book as it is about the 'after' of a kidnapping experience. I loved the narrator of Lilly. Listening to the book, you can tell that there are certain phrases and adjectives that the author uses a lot, and that bugged me, but overall I enjoyed :)
The writer seemed to know exactly what information to relay when. The pace was great. I was engrossed from start to finish. There was also a surprising twist at the end with the twin sister Abby. I haven't read Rooms but i saw the movie. this is a bit like Rooms after an escape. but with the main character having a twin, i. also really enjoyed hearing from the perpetrator, of the story. his point of view filled things out. it took me a while to like Abby, but i did by the end. also, great performance on the audiobook side of things.
I wouldn't listen to it again, it is a super teeny bopper book.
Maybe develop some more adult roles.
The narrator did good, however she had a very young voice. It started to get on my nerves after a while.
My emotions did not get to the laugh or cry factor, the book was based on events that have happened many times in the last few years. I have listened to this book, by watching the news.
Baby Doll was a not a thriller in any way, not a suspense book either. Good deep themed although.
I like that this book jumped right into the action. From the first few lines I was captivated and scared for the lead character. The suspense eventually subsides and the story turns into a dramatic tale...but a very good one. While at times the story did drag out I liked that this book doesn't just end abruptly leaving you to guess or interpret how things turn out. The story goes well into the aftermath and also includes a lengthy epilog which gives the ready/listener complete closure. I like closure so I didn't mind the fact that this book continued more than an hour after where it could have ended.
This is a decent book, seemed rather juvenile though. The idea of the book was great but in my opinion the delivery/writing of it wasn't the best. The narration was ok. The moms voice was eager but not convincing. The daughters were likeable but kinda blah also. Rick was portrayed well with his character and his narration.
