Publisher's Summary

A dark, psychological suspense drama with a twist you won't see coming....

Alone. 

As one woman battles to survive the chilling darkness, with long hours of nothing to do but wait in terror for her captor to return, she grapples through obscure dreams and memories of a painful family past.  

After a tumultuous childhood in a broken home, keeping secrets became a way of life for twin sisters Gabby and Olivia and their little sister, Emma. They've all got skeletons in their closets; memories locked away never to see the light of day.  

But after they take divergent paths in life, disaster strikes, and their pasts collide head-on with a mysterious present in this surreal and gripping family drama. The worst has happened, and if they want to find the key to survival and reconciliation, they must learn to let their skeletons out, shake the dust off them, and maybe even let them dance across the floor.  

At turns heartbreaking, dark, and beautiful, The Girl in the Box explores not only the consequences of secrets - even secrets kept out of fear - but also the courage it takes to speak the truth, to let go, and to survive.  

Trigger warning: The content of this novel contains graphic scenes: violence to women, victimization, abduction, and abuse. 

Previously titled: Let Me Go. Fiction: psychological suspense, family drama, stand-alone (no cliff-hangers).

The Girl in the box

I could feel the anguish they experienced through this authors writing. It was heartbreaking and extremely touching. And I enjoyed listening from beginning to end.

Gripping

This is a powerful and disturbing read. This book touches on the real fear every mother has for her daughter. It reminds you to stay vigilant and talk to her about the possibility that this can happen, does happen. Thank you Mrs. Akers.

Nail biting, edge of your seat writing!!!

If you like suspense, then this is definitely a book for you! This was a tearful, scary look into the childhood to young adult lives of Gabby, Olivia and Emma. These sisters went thru more than most can imagine. Regardless of or perhaps in spite of the tragic childhood, one can become a strong, independent person if you fight for it. Such a well written story!

This was an outstanding book.<br /><br />

It took me a little longer to get through it, because so much of the abuse and fracturing of the sisters and mother hit me right where I once lived. It was too close for comfort. I haven't cried over a book in a long time, but I sobbed like a baby most of the way through it. The ending certainly caught me by surprise. I wasn't certain who was in the box. Nicole Blessings voice made the read come alive. Thank you for writing such a wonderful story Lisa Akers. I look forward to more from you both.

Disappointing ending with a monotone narrator

From the beginning I did not enjoy this book. To start the narrator is monotone, even during a dramatic scene there was no emotion to her voice. The book had a huge buildup and then just ended. It almost seemed like the author just finished it without concluding the story. I wouldn’t recommend.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED....

This book was not at all what I expected. I was expecting more suspense about the girl in the box not a story about her entire child hood. it had nothing to do with why she was in the box. I listened for 5hrs about her sad life until I couldn't listen anymore. again it was a good story but not what I was hoping for.

great book

parts are kind of hard to listen to. if you have read shoot like a girl and fight like a man this is a great insight to the sisters. but a great stand alone book.
