Gemma, 16, is on layover at Bangkok Airport, en route with her parents to a vacation in Vietnam. She steps away for just a second, to get a cup of coffee. Ty–rugged, tan, too old, oddly familiar–pays for Gemma’s drink. And drugs it. They talk. Their hands touch. And before Gemma knows what’s happening, Ty takes her. Steals her away. The unknowing object of a long obsession, Gemma has been kidnapped by her stalker and brought to the desolate Australian Outback. STOLEN is her gripping story of survival, of how she has to come to terms with her living nightmare–or die trying to fight it.from Amazon
Stolen by Lucy Christopher was a book selected for a book club I’m in: The Nerdfighteria Online Book Club (note: if you’re in the market for an online book club, feel free to join us).
It wasn’t on my radar, so I probably wouldn’t have picked it up otherwise.
