Fourteen years later, Kim Miller begins to get flashbacks to her early past, a past filled with love and acceptance. Kim hates her two brothers and mother who call her “Wrong One” and treat her worse than the stepsisters abused Cinderella. And soon Daddy will be released from prison making hell even worse.
KC Sprayberry does a marvelous job bringing to life the The Wrong One, a psychological thriller about child abduction. During an age when abductions like this have come to light in the national news, this novel is the perfect book to read. It provides the inside scoop of what life for an abducted child must be like, for Sprayberry has a unique talent for getting into her a character’s head.
She grew up to be a beautiful and bright young woman of almost eighteen years with no memory of what happened fourteen years ago. Each day, they make her feel like she is worthless and incapable of anything. All the while, Kyle has been hoping to one day find her. In a very strange happening, they begin to communicate through their minds. Because of this she finds solace in the chaos of her battered life. As their eighteenth birthday is coming, Kim/Lyssa works on her escape plan and Kyle on the other hand tries to convince people she is still alive.
K.C. Sprayberry knows very well how to make the readers angry at the bad guys. I adore how she made the two main characters so strong that they are willing to take their chances of finding answers. There were times when I couldn’t help but cry for what is going on in the story. I have to say that it ended pretty well and for a moment I thought maybe K.C. can do a book II and I would definitely read it.

There was some ambiguity at the beginning about the setting, but that gets cleared up fairly early in the book. In addition, without giving away the ending, it was quite well done. Overall, this book would be a good read for the young adult reader regardless of the sex of the reader (as both sexes are represented by the main characters).
In the end, KC tells an engaging story of strength of friendship, and how those bonds can last forever.
