"In the summer of June of 1991, I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother that loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen.
For eighteen years, I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. or eighteen years, I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years, I survived an impossible situation."
- Jaycee Dugard, "A Stolen Life"
