Stolen: A Letter To My Captor by Lucy Christopher – Book Review

Stolen  5 Stars

The basic outline of this book is a girl, Gemma, is kidnapped from a Bangkok airport and taken away to the Australian desert by her captor.   This book is a letter to her captor.

I was drawn in from the very beginning.   The writing has a way of pulling you in and keeping you reading to see what will happen next and how Gemma will be saved/rescued or will she?   I do not want to write the ending here.   The whole mystery of the book to me was how does this end.   I was not disappointed.
