Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning debut novel with an intriguing literary hook: written in part as a letter from a victim to her abductor. Sensitive, sharp, captivating!

Gemma, 16, is on layover at Bangkok Airport, en route with her parents to a vacation in Vietnam. She steps away for just a second, to get a cup of coffee. Ty — rugged, tan, too old, oddly familiar — pays for Gemma's drink. And drugs it. They talk. Their hands touch. And before Gemma knows what's happening, Ty takes her. Steals her away. The unknowing object of a long obsession, Gemma has been kidnapped by her stalker and brought to the desolate Australian Outback. Stolen is her gripping story of survival, of how she has to come to terms with her living nightmare — or die trying to fight it.

Synopsis:

While on a layover at Bangkok Airport, 16-year-old Gemma, the unknowing object of a long obsession, is kidnapped by Ty and stolen away to the Australian Outback.

Synopsis:

An intensely powerful account of a teen, bullied for her port-wine stain, who must summon her personal strength to survive abduction and horrific abuse at the hands of a deranged killer.

Synopsis:

A summer romance filled with danger and lies

Jane is ready for a fantastic summer. In fact, shes pretty sure the universe owes her one.

This past winter, Jane was held at knifepoint during an armed robbery and the specter of that night still haunts her. A summer romance with one of the town bad boys—sexy Handel Davies, who takes her breath away and makes her feel like a bolder version of herself—seems like the universes way of paying her back.

But bad boys always have secrets, and Handels secret just might shatter Jane completely.

This suspense novel marries psychological thriller with summer romance and is perfect for teen fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl.

“Tempting, sexy, and dangerous, this book will steal your heart. I was...completely lured by the story's dark twists and turns.” –Marie Rutkoski, author of The Winners Curse

"Donna Freitas's stunning prose catapulted this dark, seductive tale straight into my head and heart. This is a perfect read for thrill-seeking teens." --Anna Collomore, author of The Ruining

 

Praise for Donna Freitas's previous books:

“This is an amazing story about love, loss, and the healing power of music.”—Morgan Matson, author of Amy and Rogers Epic Detour

“A riveting portrayal of the corruption of power and, ultimately, the triumph of innocence.”—Francisco Stork, author of Marcelo in the Real World

Reader Eternal, April 24, 2015 (view all comments by Reader Eternal)
This book is truly something special. It's unlike anything I've read before. This is the kind of story that haunts you, that makes you think, that moves you deeply. It's the kind of story you never forget. This is one of the most atmospheric novels I've ever read. The wildly beautiful, harshly desolate Australian setting is so evocative that it almost becomes a character in itself. And as for the main characters, Gemma and Ty...I couldn't have asked for a more powerful story than what happens between these two complex, very real characters. Lucy Christopher tells their story with a delicacy and grace that few can touch. This is a bold and brave examination of the vagaries and complexities of the human heart, both terrifying and beautiful. You can't help but be moved.
