The case of a missing teenage girl profoundly impacts the lives of two people: Madora, the emotionally starved girlfriend in a complicated relationship with the kidnapper and Django, the twelve-year-old boy who discovers the whereabouts of the teenager and plots to free both her and the kidnapper's girlfriend. Madora has lived with Willis for 5 years after running away from home with him when she was 17. She tells herself she loves Willis but time and events have tarnished his image. When he kidnaps a pregnant teenager and keeps her hidden, Madora begins to question why she stands by a man so morally reprehensible. Django comes into her life after following home one of the dogs she has rescued. The boy lost his parents in an accident and is living with his aunt who doesn't want him. Through their unlikely friendship, Madora learns to believe in herself and gather the strength to stand on her own; and Django gains a family in an unexpected place.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Little Girl Gone peers insightfully into the lives of people easily written off as monsters. With an economy of style, vivid details, and grace of expression, Drusilla Campbell has written a novel well worth staying up late to keep reading. - Laurel Corona, author of Penelope's Daughter and Finding Emilie

When is the last time you cheered out loud for a character in a novel? That's what I did as I read Drusilla Campbell's Little Girl Gone. The complex relationships between Campbell's richly drawn characters took me on a psychological roller coaster that tested my expectations, my values, and my heart. This story of tension and triumph is a perfect bookclub selection. Don't miss it! - Diane Chamberlain, bestselling author of The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes

Nobody gets to the marrow of human flaws and frailties better than Drusilla Campbell. In LITTLE GIRL GONE you are immersed in the lives of people you think you'll never meet and come to care deeply about what happens to each of them. This is a compelling story that won't leave you alone even after you've turned the last page. - Judy Reeves, author of A Writer's Book of Days

The story will make you ache for these two women who are bound inextricably and irrevocably by their shared past. - Bestselling author T. Greenwood on THE GOOD SISTER

With unflinching honesty, Drusilla Campbell explores the emotional complexities between sisters and mothers, and just how far we will go to hurt and help each other. Poignant and intense. - Ellen Newmark, author of The Book of Unholy Mischief on THE GOOD SISTER

Campbell burns through Simone's struggles and those of Roxanne in haunting, graphic detail. Should be on everyone's book club list. - Publisher's Weekly on THE GOOD SISTER

Strong and touching. - Publishers Weekly
