A 60 Second Review by Anne Brees
Genre – Young Adult Contemporary
Summary – Written as a letter from a victim to her captor, this is Gemma’s desperate story of survival. (Inside Book Jacket)
Initial Thoughts – This haunting book is based on Stockholm Syndrome. It’s an incredible story that I’m going to be recommending for a long time.
Plot – ★★★★☆ I thought that the plot was a bit slow in a few places. However, I was always anxious to start reading as soon as I had stopped.
Characters – ★★★★★ The characters of Ty and Gemma, the captor, was complex and believable,
Storyworld – ★★★★★ Gemma is kidnapped and taken to a desolate desert in Australia. The terrifying emptiness enhances the story so much.
Style – ★★★★★ Lucy Christopher captivated me with her writing style from the first sentence.
Closing Thoughts – Stolen is a must read. It will suck you in from the first page and won’t release you until the very last.
