Description
Sixteen-year-old Gemma is on a layover at Bangkok Airport, headed to Vietnam with her parents. When she steps away for a moment, she encounters the slightly older and oddly familiar Ty. Charmed by this extremely handsome young man, Gemma allows him to pay for her coffee, which he secretly drugs. Her head swirling in confusion, Gemma is whisked away to Ty's remote house in the unforgiving Australian Outback. She soon learns that Ty has been obsessed with her for years, and he believes she will learn to love him, too. But Gemma is no easy target. Clever and brave, she plots her escape-even as her feelings toward her captor grow more sympathetic. This stunning debut novel from Australian author Lucy Christopher generated considerable buzz for its nonstop suspense and breathtaking imagery. The subtleties of Gemma's fluctuating emotions are skillfully portrayed through Emily Gray's narration.

      • content: From the start, listeners know that 16-year-old Gemma survives her ordeal at the hands of her kidnapper; after all, she's telling the story in the form of a letter to him. Emily Gray's narration is as arid and desolate as the Australian Outback where Ty hides Gemma. But Gray cannot overcome the story's lackluster writing and dubious premise. Where does Ty, a young Australian man abandoned by his family, get the wherewithal to stalk a British teenager around the globe for years before he finally grabs her? What could have been a fascinating psychological examination of Stockholm syndrome is, instead, an improbable, tedious tale in which the kidnapper is more sympathetic than the victim. N.E.M.

        Starred review from April 12, 2010
        Christopher’s debut is an emotionally raw thriller that follows the abduction of 16-year-old Gemma by Ty, a gorgeous, 20-something Australian who is in love with her and hopes to win her love in return. The fast-paced novel is written in the past tense as a sort of diary from Gemma to Ty, suggesting that she has escaped, though this makes the story no less suspenseful. Ty drugs Gemma in a Bangkok airport and transports her to the home he has built in the isolated Australian outback, believing he’s rescuing her from shallow parents and a city life in London she never really fit into. Clever and determined, Gemma gathers her strength and plots numerous escapes to no avail. In the process, she encounters the wildness of her desert surroundings and carefully digs for Ty’s weaknesses, patching together his complex history, including the extent of his six-year obsession with her. Gemma’s fluctuating emotions are entirely believable—she’s repulsed by Ty, but can’t help recognizing the ways in which he’s opened her eyes. It’s a haunting account of captivity and the power of relationships. Ages 14–up.

        January 1, 2011

        Gr 9 Up-Sixteen-year-old Gemma, traveling with her parents, is abducted at a Bangkok airport by troubled Ty, a 20-something man from the Outback, in Lucy Christopher's debut novel (Philomel, 2010). Ty has stalked Gemma for years. At the airport he manages to drug her, and then takes her on a flight back to Australia. The novel is written as a first-person narrative told by Gemma in a letter to Ty after her release, revealing the details of the abduction and her feelings, illustrating a classic case of Stockholm syndrome. Gemma has conflicting feelings toward her abductor: she's angry at him for abducting her, but loves him for his care giving. The story darts from escape attempts thwarted by the hostile landscape and climate to Ty's erratic behavior to Ty and Gemma catching a feral camel that plays a large part in Gemma's rescue. Christopher's descriptions of events and intense surroundings are remarkable. She won the 2010 Branford Boase Award for the year's best first novel for young adults published in the United Kingdom, and is short listed for Australia's Prime Minister's Literary Award for Young Adult Fiction. Unfortunately, Emily Gray's narration is uninspired, doing little to enhance the story. The audiobook lacks the suspense of the print version.-Jennifer Ward, Albany Public Library, NY
