I was very skeptical over whether or not to get this because of the other mixed reviews but I was glad I took the plunge.
I thought it was amazing and found myself rooting for him all along and by the end of the book I was nearly in tears over the surprise ending. Tears of happiness, or tears of sadness I just couldn't tell. Though it wasn't the ending I was expecting, nor wholeheartedly hoping for it leaves almost on a cliff hanger with room for you to decide what's going to happen after she finishes writing. I've recommended this book to all of my friends who enjoy a good realistic fiction and I've even gotten people thanking me for recommending it because they enjoy it.
On the other end of the spectrum, ie, the people who don't enjoy the book, I understand where they're coming from though I can't personally picture myself disliking it. It's a little vague in some spots but so is nearly every book I've ever read and if you're trying to decide if you should try this book, I would say just try it and ignore the bad reviews Along with the good ones and go into it with an open mind and I'll bet you'll like it.

I read Stolen in a YA lit class in college and it absolutely messed me up, haha. I confess that I get intensely emotionally involved in just about every book I read, but Stolen got me unexpectedly and I found myself bawling for hours after I finished. The premise really drew me in at first. A teenage girl is kidnapped in an airport. I'm in to that. But Christopher begins to blur the lines of morality almost immediately. For one, her kidnapper is a 24ish yr old cute boy who mild spoiler doesn't once try to touch her inappropriately.
The way the kidnapper, Ty, is written is what what messed with me mentally. You are virtually forced to sympathize with him and love him in a way.
I found myself hoping that Gemma would just accept her fate and stay with Ty forever willingly, which then made me feel guilty that I felt that way.
The setting is in the outback of Australia, literally in the middle of nowhere. Through Ty and his all-encompassing love for his land, gained such appreciation for the beauty of the land and mysticism of Australia.
I think it is a beautiful, moving novel that turns the traditional kidnapper story on its head, causing the reader to think about it for days weeks or months later.
I am really curious as to what Christopher wants readers to take away from this novel, because I am still unsure of what I myself have taken away, other than possibly Stockholm Syndrome for Ty. It has made me question myself and why I had such a deep emotional reaction to the book.
I can see how this could be a controversial book for young readers. At any rate, it is an intriguing read that I had trouble putting down, with a fascinating kidnapper, a warped love story, a dear dear camel, a slightly annoying main character, and an ending that doesn't give you full closure but enough to feel complete, yet still a lot is left to the reader's imagination. Love Stolen!
I have been wanting to read this for the longest time! I am not sure what lead me to read it this time around but I am glad I did. Stolen written by Lucy Christopher is a compelling story written in the point of view of Gemma, a sixteen-year-old girl who was kidnapped in Bangkok Airport on her way to Vietnam with her parents, in the form of a letter. Af first, she kind of recognizes Ty, her kidnapper, as he approaches her while she is ordering coffee at a nearby coffee shop.
Ty waits for an opportune time to first make his approach, and looking back it all seems to fit well with his timing to kidnap Gemma.
He makes smalltalk as he is waiting for his moment and then the action begins. Gemma, isn't just a stranger that Ty decides to kidnap. There is a bit of history between the two and throughout the 'letter', you begin to see when and how they met.
For most of the story, Gemma dislikes Ty and believes he will kill her and is just waiting for the day he will actually kill her. When a few days have passed and he hasn't yet killed her, she begins to wonder and find ways to escape.
There have been multiple occasions where Gemma finds herself in a situation and Ty is the one to save her. I loved the camel and how Gemma and the camel find solace through each other.
Even though Ty has kidnapped Gemma and it's an automatic feeling to hate him for that, I loved that Gemma has started to look beyond that and try to get to know him better through their conversations. Yes kidnapping someone against their will is bad but I kind of found it endearing that Ty always wanted the best for Gemma, even though it means he will eventually lose her and himself.
I strongly believe that if Gemma hadn't been bitten by the snake, the four months would have passed and she would have stayed there with Ty. I kind of wanted to see that come to light. But, at the same time, I thought what Ty did for her in the end made him a better person. No one can know for sure, what became of Ty but I believe that action made him better.
Lucy Christopher has written a beautiful story through Stolen and loved every bit of the story. It's very captivating and I wanted to read every word.
But since Stolen is entirely in Gemma's point of view, maybe Lucy would consider a sequel to write about Ty's point of view and history. That way we can have a whole book ful of Ty!
