For some reason, last night I was in the mood for a mystery, so I browsed through my library's ebook collection and came across this book. I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did! You'll hear a more in-depth explanation below, but let me just say that this book is well worth your time!
Stolen tells the story of a sixteen year old girl named Gemma who is kidnapped at the airport by a strong and mysterious man. The book illustrates how the relationship between captor and captive evolves and how Stolkholm Syndrome can take hold as a survival mechanism as a result of isolation.
What I Liked
What I Did Not Like
Stolen was a fascinating read. I read the entire book in one sitting because I could not put it down! I was very impressed by the unique nature of this kidnapping story, and I would recommend this book to teens looking for a mystery but wanting to avoid lots of violence and brutality.
