Claim to Fame by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Several years ago Lindsey was the child star of a television show but now she lives with her dad in a small town in Illinois. She has hidden herself away because she has been able to hear anything that is said about her by anyone anywhere in the world since the age of 11. For some reason the home she lives in now shields her from all the voices in her head so she rarely steps foot outside. But that changes when she is kidnapped by two boys who want to save her from what they believe is a bad life. She comes back home but now faces a whole new set of problems from the boys and their friend Roz who wonder why she acts so strange outside of her house and how she's living alone since her father died several weeks before. Lindsey has to find a way to protect her secret and get rid of all the people prying into her business.
