16 year old Cady wakes up with no recollection of her identity or where she is. She escapes from the cabin where she is being held hostage and struggles to overcome her amnesia.
After waking up in a cabin with her left hand throbbing, the narrator doesn't know what to think. Although she has no recollection of who she is or what has happened to her, she gathers her wits after hearing two men arguing about whether or not to kill her. When one of the men leaves the cabin and the other drags her out into the woods surrounding the cabin, the narrator is able to escape by using a rock to knock her captor unconscious. She takes his car and gun and drives to the nearest police station to ask for help. After explaining her story to the policeman (really a security officer), the phone rings. Subsequently, the policeman locks her up in his police car because the caller told him that she was a mental patient. The girl escapes by threatening the policeman with the gun. Who is she? Why did those two men in the cabin want to kill her? Is this all a figment of her imagination?
The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die By April Henry is about this girl who doesn't know who she can trust. She believes someone is out to find and kill her. Is it true? Or, is it all in her head.... read to find out.
