Kidnap Victim Jaycee Dugard Tells Diane Sawyer About 'Stolen Life'

Jaycee Dugard, the kidnapped little girl who spent 18 years being held captive by Nancy and Phillip Garrido, is finally breaking her silence after being rescued two years ago.

Dugard chose to tell her story in a new memoir, "A Stolen Life," and in conversation with ABC News host Diane Sawyer, to air this Sunday.

"Now I can walk in the next room and see my mom," Dugard told Sawyer about the simply joys of her freedom. "Wow. I can decide to jump in the car and go to the beach with the girls. Wow, it's unbelievable, truly."

Watch a sneak peek.

Dugard, now 31, lives with her mother and the two daughters she gave birth to while being locked up in the Garrido's backyard -- also reveals for the first time what happened the day she was kidnapped.

While walking to school June 10, 1991, Garrido used a stun gun to shock the 11-year-old Dugard. She tried to scoot into the bushes. The last thing she remembers touching was something sticky.

Phillip Garrido was sentenced to 431 years in prison in June. Nancy Garrido is serving a sentence of 36 years to life in prison.

Watch Diane Sawyer's exclusive interview with Jaycee on Sunday, July 10, at 9:00 PM on ABC.
