“You saw me before I saw you…You had that look in your eyes…Like you wanted me…‘I’m Ty,’ you said. ‘Gemma,’ I said, before I meant to. You nodded as though you already knew. But, of course, I suppose you already did.”
While traveling the world with her parents (who are constantly engrossed in their work) Gemma meets a stunning young man while buying a drink in the airport coffee shop. Unaware of his intentions, Gemma allows the man to pay for her drink, and he slyly spikes it with drugs. Soon after, Gemma finds herself in a dreamlike haze as the man leads her out of the airport and into the beginning of the most terrifying struggle of her life. With an incredibly unique plotline, Stolen by Lucy Christopher captures the story of Gemma, a sixteen-year-old Londoner, in the format of a letter she wrote to her kidnapper. Christopher’s writing style is captivating in every aspect and will leave you hanging on every word.
