5 STAR BOOK: Stolen


I just finished the book, Stolen, & I could not wait to tell you guys about it. Let me preface this glowing recommendation by saying that it's NOT for everyone. It is INTENSE, a little SCARY, & there is a decent sprinkling of LANGUAGE.

So, the story follows 16-year old Gemma who is kidnapped (or "Stolen"- get it, get it) from an airport by Ty, a handsome guy who bought her coffee, drugged it, & brought her to the Australian outback & expects her to love him.

The writing is gorgeous, the way the author talks about the land, plants, even the air in the outback- I loved it. The concept of the story was fantastic and so interesting, but the part I loved the most was the fact that the whole story is told as if she's talking to him. It made the story so intimate & more real somehow.
