Snatched is the first book-length study to interrogate the predominant myths centered on gender and class that shaped mainstream U.S. news coverage of kidnappings in the 2000s. Through an exploration of hundreds of reports from newspapers, news magazines, television broadcasts, and web stories, Snatched critically analyzes how news narratives construct the phenomenon of child abductions, the young girls and boys who fall victim, the male perpetrators of these horrific crimes, and the adult victims of long-term abductions who were found years later. The book's interdisciplinary nature, methodological rigor, and thorough investigation into some of the most riveting and revolting crimes of the last decade make Snatched a worthy, important, and timely contribution to the fields of media studies and girlhood studies.

"Scholars and students interested in moral panics, cultural narratives, and news will find a fascinating read in 'Snatched.' Spring-Serenity Duvall and Leigh Moscowitz effectively weave together theory and textual analysis, taking us into the mediated world of abducted children, their families, and kidnappers. The book highlights the racial, gendered, and classed disparities in news coverage as it questions the ethics of journalism that sensationalizes and capitalizes upon missing children." (Carol M. Liebler, Professor, Department of Communications, S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University)
"Spring-Serenity Duvall and Leigh Moscowitz provide a sophisticated and accessible analysis of news coverage concerning 'every parent's worst nightmare - and in doing so expose the myths and moral panics rooted in gender, race, class, sexuality, and nation that shape U.S. cultural views of innocence, family and childhood, as well as deviance and crime. Their book goes well beyond the common criticism of news organizations that they afford outsized coverage to white, middle- and upper-class girls who are abducted, thereby ignoring children of color and those who do not fit the preferred profile. Instead, 'Snatched' provides nuanced readings of the news to generate fresh insights into this horrific crime." (Marian Meyers, Professor, Department of Communication and the Institute of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Georgia State University)
