BCCB, review, June 2010
"[A]n interesting book for examining what obsessive Twilight-style approaches to love can mean in a real-life context...Readers who can't get enough of Cormier's classic After the First Death will find this induces both shivers and thought."

Booklist, review, March 15, 2010
"Christopher's first novel is a complex psychological study that is also a tribute to
the hypnotic beauty of the outback."

Kirkus, review, April 15, 2010
"From its compelling opening, the novel delivers taut suspense and a riveting plot in a haunting setting."

Publishers Weekly, starred review, April 12, 2010
"Christopher's debut is an emotionally raw thriller...fast-paced novel...It's a haunting account of captivity and the power of relationships."

School Library Journal, review, June 2010
"Disturbing, heartbreaking, and beautiful all at once, this book is the antithesis of the situational horror in Elizabeth Scott's Living Dead Girl."

VOYA, review, June 2010
"Stolen has a veracity and immediacy that rivets the reader to the page. Vivid descriptions of the Sandy Desert combine with Gemma's emotional turmoil to evoke a sense of danger. This fascinating, disturbing novel should appeal to teens fourteen and older."
