Review Detail

 
Young Adult Fiction
Reader reviewed by Lia

Stolen starts out with Gemma getting coffee at the airport when she is kidnapped by the kind stranger who pays for her coffee. Taken from Bangkok to the middle of nowhere in Australia, Gemma has to use her wits to escape her captor.

Let me just start out saying: OMG!!! I did not think this would be my type of book but it was so good. I read it all in one sitting. I think I stayed up until like 3 in the morning to finish this book. You just have keep reading to find out what would happen. I loved the main character, Gemma, which I seldom do. She was totally relatable and was a strong protagonist throughout the whole book. The writing pulled me in from the first page, and the plot was fast-paced, keeping me thoroughly engaged with this book. I can't wait to read more by Lucy Christopher.

I completely agree with you! At first I was slightly apprehensive to read it, but after I'd read the first few pages I found myself hooked. Lucy Christopher is definitely an author to watch!
