Summer Book Club: Stolen by Lucy Christopher

It’s easy for us to get caught up with the buzz of summer. Hanging out with friends, day trips to the beach, summer jobs or classes…it all gets to be a bit too much sometimes.  It’s for that reason precisely, why the best way to unwind (in my opinion) is to sit down with a good book.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher is just that – a good book. The protagonist, Gemma, tells the story of her kidnapping through this complex, thrilling, and emotional testimony. What makes this book unlike any other of the same genre is the intensity it brings as well as the sense of realism. Gemma struggles with her emotions about her situation and her captor, sorting through her understanding of what happened and why. Stolen is a captivating read right from the beginning. Starting with a description of her abduction, Stolen is emotionally raw, disturbing, and darkly beautiful.

Have you read Stolen? What did you think?

Stay tuned for more of our Summer Book Club! Any suggestions?
