Madora was seventeen and headed for trouble with drugs and men, when Willis rescued her. Fearful of the world and alienated from family and friends, she ran away with him, and for five years they have lived alone, in near isolation. But after Willis kidnaps a pregnant teenager and imprisons her in a trailer behind the house, Madora is torn between her love for him and her sense of right and wrong that, despite her rebellion, has never completely abandoned her.

When a pit bull puppy named Foo suddenly -- and unexpectedly --brings twelve-year-old Djago Jones, a brilliant but troubled boy, into her life, Madora is finally forced to face the truth of what her life has become.

An intensely emotional and provocative story, Little Girl Gone explores the secret hopes and fears that drive good people to do dangerous things . . . and the courage it takes to make things right.
