Stolen: A Letter to My Captor - Lucy Christopher Gemma is 16 and traveling with her parents when she runs into Ty at the airport while getting coffee. Even though she felt like something was off, she sits down with him and this leads to the rest of the story. Ty ends up getting her out of Bangkok and to some desert area in Australia. The author does a great job of conveying Gemma's evolving feelings throughout the novel. She is a normal teenage girl that happens to be in an out of the ordinary situation. Surprisingly Ty's goal was to "save" her and he was completely convinced that bringing her to this place was the way to do it. As a reader, you know he did something completely wrong by taking Gemma but by reading the letter through her voice, I was brought into the story and could see her feelings and the way she saw Ty changing. I was honestly a combination of happy and sad to see that Ty sacrificed his freedom to save Gemma. He absolutely could have let her get on that plane and stayed where he was with no fear that anyone would ever find him again but he made the decision to stay with Gemma to make sure she felt safe. This story was beautifully written and I enjoyed it. I do feel a bit like I didn't get any closure by not finding out what happened after the letter was completed but not so much that it had a negative impact on the story.
