Girl, Stolen by April Henry
 

Book Summary

Cheyenne is waiting in the back of an SUV for her stepmother to fill a prescription for her. She's feeling rotten. It gets worse - someone jumps in to the front seat and starts the car, and it's not her stepmother. Cheyenne is blind, and it's not clear whether that will help or hinder her efforts to free herself and get home safely.
