Jaycee Dugard was rescued from her kidnapping nightmare a little more than a year ago, and she's ready to write about the 18-year ordeal. Dugard's memoir will track her abduction and life in captivity, as well as how she’s doing now, the AP reports. “I was moved and inspired by the raw power of Jaycee Dugard's voice, her strength, and her resilience,” says a Simon & Schuster rep. The book will be published next year. Click here for the latest on Dugard’s case—her accused kidnappers want her to visit them.
