Count All Her Bones is the thrilling sequel to Girl, Stolen by April Henry. It occurs after blind protagonist Cheyenne’s first abduction at the hands of a boy named Griffin and his father Roy. Using her sharp senses, quick wit, and the unexpected help of Griffin, she managed to escape her captors the first time. However, Roy is still planning revenge, and rather than money, this time he is out for Cheyenne’s blood. He pretends to be Griffin and messages Cheyenne online, telling her to meet him in a secluded area at night. She is kidnapped and finds Griffin in the same situation. Together, they must find a way to escape. As a blind person, Cheyenne is constantly forced to interact with her environment in unconventional ways. She relies solely on her other four senses, noticing and utilizing things no sighted person would. Defying the common trope of a damsel in distress, Cheyenne is a girl who will not wait for someone else to save her; instead, she finds ways to save herself. Another prominent point that adds to the book’s immersion is the amount of research that went into creating this story. The author got into contact with numerous specialists: martial arts masters, firearms experts, paramedics, and reporters to ensure utmost realism. The result is a gripping tale which includes real-life concepts and technologies. I would highly recommend this book to all thriller fans looking for a unique, cunning protagonist and for an insight into the world of blindness.
