Printz Honor Winner: Stolen

By Lucy Christopher
Printz Honor 2011

This novel is one that will stick with the reader for a long time after the final words are read.  It is written as a letter from Gemma to her kidnapper, Ty.  While deep down the reader knows that Ty is doing something wrong and that Gemma may be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, you just can't help but root for a romance between the two.  How does this fascinating story end?  This is a must read to find out!  Do you like the ending or do you feel it should have ended differently?  Are you hoping for a sequel?  I'm not sure if that is possible, but I know I was left wanting more of Gemma and Ty.
