Trailer Ú Stolen: A Letter to My Captor PDF by Æ Lucy Christopher This book completely reaffirmed my fascination with the beautiful land that is Australia.
But the people who live there seem to want everyone to think it s a lot like this Or this Or even this Gemma, just a regular 16 year old school girl, has been captured by a handsome and alluring young Australian man named Ty Although Gemma seems to think so, it never feels like she s in any imminent danger, from Ty at least From the environment yes.
The stakes and suspense don t seem that high, as I fully believed that he never intended to hurt her Regardless, the author managed to draw me in with every single word.
The story itself is incredible, as is the the writing and character development I just worry that it s glorifying kidnapping Cause really, how many child abductors are 20 something sexy Australian men with supermodel looks and a hot bod, who only want to be lovedIf I w I just had a copy of STOLEN by Lucy Christopher put into my hands at ALA, and I am definitely, definitely sending a quote for them to use for the paperback edition It s a YA novel about a girl who is kidnapped from an airport by a crazy guy and taken to a shack in the Australian outback The novel features1 crazy guy2 camels3 strong heroine4 poisonous snakes did you know that Australia is the only continent where species of poisonous snakes outnumbers non poisonous ones 5 hallucinating6 kangaroos7 psychological terror and thrillingness 8 vehicular chases9 did I mention crazy guy 10 a supporting cast of chickensIt s got a great sense of place and the character development is just fantastic I love me some trauma , but the thing I liked best was that as Gemma, the main character, spends time in the prese
I made it, you said, gruffly, for you You shoved it onto my finger It was roughly carved, shaped from a lump of something colourful and colda ring made entirely from a gemstone It was beautiful It glinted emerald greens and blood reds over my skin, and had tiny flecks of gold catching the light I couldn t stop staring at it Why I asked.
You didn t answer that Instead you touched the ring gently and looked piercingly at me, unsaid questions in your eyes.
HOLY SHIT I should not have read this book Even though it s definitely going to be on top of my favorites list I don t think I ve ever cried so much while reading a book But I loved it It was perfect.
I wanted to read this book for so long, but couldn t get my hands on it I was just very fascinated by the summary of the book, and who am I to deny that beautiful cover Well, the story b Spoilers that s it Well, that was a shit fucking letter, wasn t it Can you even call that a letter It s just a recollection of everything that happened between Gemma and Ty As if someone would be able to remember every conversation that had happened on every day for a month It s fine as a story, but I did not accept the letter concept It reminds me of a certain Friends episode where Rachel and Ross are fighting and Rachel wrote him a letter.
Ross I fell asleep Rachel You fell asleep Ross It was 5 30 in the morning, and you had rambled on for 18 pages Front and back I think it s safe to say that my expectations were way up high, because of all the skyrocketing ratings, and it all came crashing down into a million pieces I thought this book was going to be fucked up, all kinds of twisted, but luckily for Gemma she met t So, the hype surrounding this book.
I ve read a few books on the topic of kidnapping now, and I can safely say this one is my least favorite so far Firstly, the actual kidnapping that takes place just seems SO UNREALISTIC to me that I can t even take it I find it really hard to believe that a 25 year old man could so effortlessly get a 16 year old girl who is drugged out of her mind through airport security with a fake passport Just no That would not happen The one thing I enjoyed about this book was the setting, because AUSTRALIA However, since they re way out in the desert I didn t get to see much of it, but yeah I liked that it was a bit different in that way.
However, the entire story fell very flat for me, and I never cared about what was happening I was interested at the beginning because the kidnapping scene was really Stolen is such a singular reading experience that its difficult to decide how I feel about it.
Gemma is a sixteen year old English girl kidnapped by Ty and taken into the Western Australian outback where she is held prisoner.
I had to give this book five stars for several reasons One of the reasons is because it was so fantastically well written Beautiful, touching, heart breaking and real Christopher doesn t spare on the details both good and bad Never before have I felt a book to be so real, so gritty and tangible.
This book is a journey into the world of Stockholm Syndrome and the craft of Christopher s skill left even me, feeling the effects of this baffling psychological problem.
The characters of Ty and Gemma are fantastic At first I was frustrated with Gemma I was so used to reading kick ass female protagonists who could do any

This review will very likely be brief and will very likely be a hot mess, because I just can t believe how gorgeous this single piece of literature is I can t believe it took me this long to read it I ll definitely say it was worth the wait, though.
It s been a while since I ve read something that touched me this deeply How this book is written just gutted me and left me breathless at times Gemma was relatable because she was a real teenage girl I would ve done some of the things she did if I were in her position, and I would ve thought of things the same way she did She was always wary, always looking for chances of escape, even though it was pretty much hopeless.
And then there s Ty.
I wasn t expecting to be so in love with him I wasn t expecting this at all But even less than 100 pages in, I had already warmed up to him He is not evil or cruel in any w
