PICK OF THE MONTH – TRAPPED, DEPRESSINGLY BRUTAL

Hello wattpaders, once again! After taking a long break from Wattpad and this blog, I am back with a bang with a very interesting and psychological thriller ‘Trapped’! Read on to find more about it.

TITLE: TRAPPED

AUTHOR: SALLY MASON

GENRE: MYSTERY

Kelsey Miller, a sixteen year old, was kidnapped, tortured and raped by two men for many months after which she finally escaped. She only knew one of the kidnapper and never knew the second person at the hands of whom she suffered the most. She was a virgin when she was raped brutally, and was left to bleed. She was shut in a cabin in woods and was raped repeatedly by both of the kidnappers and tortured mentally and was made to do things which would haunt her for life.

When she escaped after some months, she still was not able to identify the second kidnapper and the first kidnapper got away on a slight technicality. The horrors she underwent made her a dead person on the inside. She shut out everybody and spent her time trying to cope up and forget what happened, but instead spent time in relieving the past trauma. Her only pillar of support was her step brother, Luke, in whom she felt a safe haven.

When she was still in her depression, the most horrible thing that could ever happen to a survivor happened to her. She was once again forcefully taken by the same kidnappers, by mentally manipulating her by kidnapping an other virgin. Kelsey did not want anyone else to go through what had happened to her and so she fell into the trap again.

How did she come out of her second trap? And most importantly, who was the second kidnapper, who even eluded the police?

With a mix of a psychological thriller and a very powerful narrative of the pain a rape survivor goes through, the author clearly reflects the feelings of the Kelsey to the readers. A definite read for people with a thirst for psychological thriller.

My rating: 8.5/10

  1. Great review. It is a very troubling story, but it resonates with truth as to what rape does to a woman or man. The main character’s experience is really worse that death to her as it would be to anyone, but she struggles on not wanting them to have taken all of her.
