The Girl in the White Van is a suspenseful and thrilling mystery novel by April Henry. This book is about a girl who gets kidnapped by an old man who also kidnapped another girl 8 months before. The two kidnapped girls (Savannah and Jenny) hatch a plan to escape their kidnapper, they almost get killed and nearly escape. I love the way the author brings suspense and tells the story from the views of all characters instead of just one, and the way the suspense kills you right from the start.
