Stolen is written in the perspective of a letter to the kidnapper. Gemma, a sixteen year old girl, is traveling with her mother and father. While at an airport in Bangkok, China. Gemma goes to get a cup of coffee and meets Ty, who offers to pay for her drink. After paying, he quickly drugs her drink, and is able to get her out of the airport unnoticed. Ty takes Gemma to the Australian Outback. She awakes in a room in the middle of nowhere. She tries to escape, as she finds that she is not tied down and the doors are not locked, only to have Ty stop her. He tells her that it’s no use running, that there’s nothing nearby.
As she spends more time in this house, she realizes that there really is nothing around. Water comes from a local reservoir, and electricity is powered by the Sun- they are in the middle of the desert, so it is very efficient. She is able to explore the land around her, with Ty at her side.
Gemma soon discovers that her kidnapping wasn’t random, but he was the stalker that she did not know she had. She had had moments where she thought someone was following her, but there were no other signs that she was being stalked. Who is Ty? Will Gemma get back to her family? Why exactly did Ty begin to stalk her? What will happen if she tries to escape, not knowing the land around her?
