About the book

Book cover - Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher

In a moving letter to her captor, sixteen-year-old Gemma relives her kidnapping from Bangkok airport while on holiday. Taken by Ty, her troubled young stalker, to the wild and desolate Australian outback, she reflects on a landscape from which there’s no escape.

In a story of survival, passion and darkness, Gemma reveals how she had to deal with the nightmare, or die trying to fight it.
