From the author's website:
Sixteen year old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back? The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don’t exist – almost.

I can't wait to read this book; it sounds like yet another amazing story from Chicken House. And how nice is the cover?!

Oh wow, I love kidnap books! Although this one sounds very different. Is it just me or are butterflies becoming a theme in YA UK covers? I love butterflies!

Whoaaaa. I love kidnap books too! Talk about Stockholm Syndrome, lol. And I agree, the cover is incredible. I just love the flat simplicity of the butterfly against the background. Man, I'm moving to the UK, like, now!

Looks awesome ^_^

Clare said...

Its a fantastic book, eerie in places because you forget in parts that she has been kidnapped and its just so strange reading about the relationship that they have.... read it now jenny!!! :) I was reading it on the train and the proof kind of looks like one of those "real life tragic stories" so it was a bit worrying as to what people would think! Its got my vote for May book of the month anyway.
read it, read it, read it, read it!

This is one incredible book.
It's like nothing you will have ever read before. Stolen completely flips your views on right and wrong as you find yourself sympathising for the 'bad guy'.
Please write a sequel!!!
Maybe a letter back to Gem from Ty?
You could call it Saved... :D
