The woman who lived through a terrifying abduction and 18 years of captivity is telling her chilling tale!
It’s every parent’s worst nightmare — your child being abducted and having no idea where they are! Unlike many abducted children, Jaycee Dugard lived to tell the horrible tale firsthand, and now, she’s telling her story in a memoir to be published by Simon and Schuster.
The book will cover Jaycee’s story, from when she was abducted in 1991 to her present-day life as a 30-year-old mother of two daughters who were fathered by her abductor, Phillip Garrido, whose home she lived behind in a makeshift house during her captivity.
“When I read the pages, I was moved and inspired by the raw power of Jaycee Dugard’s voice, her strength, and her resilience,” Simon and Schuster head Jonathan Karp said.
Although the financial details of her book deal were not disclosed, Jaycee was awarded $20 million by California legislators for psychological, physical, and emotional damages.
