Description

Locked in a room with a bed, refrigerator, and adjoining bathroom, I was instructed to eat, bathe, and behave. I received meals, laundered clothes, and toiletries through a cat door, never knowing if it was day or night. The last time I saw the face of my abductor was when he dragged me fighting from the trunk of his car. And when I finally escaped, I prayed I'd never see him again.

Now that I'm home, my parents and friends want everything to be like it was before I left. But they don't understand that dining out and shopping trips can't heal what's broken inside me. I barely leave my bedroom. Therapists are clueless and condescending. So I start my own form of therapy - but writing about my experience awakens uncomfortable memories, ones that should've stayed buried. How far will I have to go to uncover the truth of what happened - and will it break me forever?

Review quote

"Stolarz ups the psychological ante...the depth of psychological intrigue is absorbing, and the twist on Stockholm syndrome disturbing...this novel is a testament to how the mind can reshape reality in order to survive...Powerfully graphic." - Kirkus, Starred Review

"A story about lingering trauma, loss, and the journey toward healing, this gripping crime novel could be a documentary from the Investigation Discovery channel. A must-read." - School Library Journal

"This engrossing confessional is both heartbreaking and hopeful." - Booklist

"A brave and bold piece of fiction. Jane Anonymous is riveting. It will scare you, intrigue you, and keep you up reading way too late." - C.C. Hunter, New York Times bestselling author

"An engrossingly tense yet tender story that digs deep. Jane Anonymous isn't your average thriller, it's full of heart and determination." - Tiffany D. Jackson, author of Let Me Hear a Rhyme and Monday's Not Coming

"Thrilling, captivating, and compulsively readable."--Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life

"A timely, suspenseful tale of trauma and its aftereffects - of how you can never go home again and how the things you remember are just as important as the things you don't. Readers will devour each page like a trail of breadcrumbs left by Stolarz all the way up until the book's twisty end. There is nothing anonymous about Jane - she is all of us." -Tonya Hurley New York Times bestselling author of the ghostgirl series and The Blessed Trilogy.

"It's no surprise that Laurie Faria Stolarz has delivered another taut, potent page-turner, replete with shivers and plenty of twists. But with Jane Anonymous, she ratchets up the tension and digs deep, offering the reader a nuanced reflection on identity, memory, and intimacy that grabs hold and doesn't let go." - Micol Ostow, internationally bestselling author of The Devil and Winnie Flynn and Riverdale: The Day Before

"Jane Anonymous is equal parts terrifying and heartbreaking. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I'm STILL thinking about it." --Stacey Kade, author of Finding Felicity and The Ghost and the Goth

"Jane Anonymous is a haunting, horrifying tale I won't soon forget. Jane grabbed me from the first page and still refuses to let go." - Cyn Balog, Author of Alone and That Night
