Jaycee Dugard developed Stockholm syndrome. Jaycee wrote A Stolen Life based on her abduction story that began when she was eleven years old. She was held captive by Phillip Garrido and his wife for a traumatic eighteen years. The author’s motive to write A Stolen Life was to tell the world about Phillip’s actions because people should know that “he is most certainly responsible for stealing [Jaycee’s] life and the life [she] should have had with [her] family.” Her other motive to write this novel was to hopefully help somebody facing a difficult situation, especially those who are experiencing similar conditions. “My goal is to inspire people to speak out when they see that something is not quite right… that society changes in regards to how we treat someone who speaks out… With my writings, i hope to convey that you can endure tough situations and survive.” On June 10th, 1991, Jaycee was walking to school on what seemed like a regular day, when a car pulled up beside her.
