Review -- Stolen

Stolen: A Letter to My Captor
Lucy Christopher
**I bought this book in England while on vacation and did not realize that it hasn't been published in the U.S. yet. There was no publisher or page numbers available on the Internet. (Sorry!)

Summary: Gemma is kidnapped while on vacation with her parents. Her captor, Ty, takes her into the rugged Australia outback where she must fight for her life.

Review: Stolen is an interesting read. The story is written completely from Gemma point of view as she relays her side of the story to her captor and tries to make sense of what has happened to her. A young adult novel, it was an easy read and had some very intense moments. My only concern with the novel is that Ty's character is still a mystery at the end. I would have loved rotating chapters by both Gemma and Ty so the reader could understand both characters motivations for their actions. Well written and entertaining, I would recommend this book. Rating: *** out of 5.
