Told in a moving letter to her captor, sixteen-year-old Gemma relives her kidnapping from Bangkok airport while on holiday. Taken by Ty, her troubled young stalker, to the wild and desolate Australian outback, she reflects on a landscape from which there's no escape. A story of survival, passion and darkness, Gemma reveals how she had to deal with the nightmare, or die trying to fight it. Sensitive, powerful and beautifully written.
WOW. This book is so amazing. I really really LOVE this book. I was hooked on the first page and I could not put it down. I could tell that this book was going to be good but it really blew me away. I really love the whole story. It's beautiful, moving, sad, happy! I could really picture myself in Gemma's shoes and I really like her as the main character. I'm just really speechless because this book is so darn good! It's 100% a MUST read. I was so sad when I finished reading because I just wanted to know more about Gemma and Ty! I hope there's a sequel but I highly doubt there will be one. This book had me laughing out loud, gasping and almost crying at some parts. Definitely a page turning book.
Sorry for the short review but I think you get the point. READ READ READ IT NOW! This goes in my category of favorite books.
