The sound of snapping twigs closed in on the five teenagers enjoying an evening around a glowing campfire at Gitchie Manitou State Park. The night of music and laughter had taken a dark turn. Evil loomed just beyond the tree line, and before the night was over, one of the Midwest's most horrific mass murders had left its bloodstains spewed across the campsite. One managed to survive and would come to be known as the "Gitchie Girl". Harrowing memories of the terrifying crime sent her spiraling out of control, and she grasped at every avenue to rebuild her life.
Can one man, a rescue dog, and a glimmer of faith salvage a broken soul? This true story will touch your heart and leave you cheering that good can prevail over the depravity of mankind.

Tense, horrific, inspiring. A real horror movie
Such a good book. Told from the POV of Sandra, the sole survivor, and the police detective who believed in her, the book is a tense recollection of what happened that night and the aftermath that followed.
Sandra is such a true survivor, and an inspiration. She had a rough life before the murders and rape, and then dealt with isolation and scrutiny after. Yet, she went on and managed to live the most normal life she could. She's tough!
The book is a little slow at the beginning, talking about Sandra's upbringing, but gets nail biting intense and stays that way. You find yourself wanting to comfort Sandra and stand with her through this ordeal.
