Spread The Awesome: Win Stolen by Lucy Christopher

So I just found about this this morning, but the awesome Elana Johnson is hosting a Spread The Awesome day today where bloggers post the books they think deserve ten stars! Obviously, I had to participate! So here's my pick:

Stolen by Lucy Christopher

Gemma, 16, is on layover at Bangkok Airport, en route with her parents to a vacation in Vietnam. She steps away for just a second, to get a cup of coffee. Ty--rugged, tan, too old, oddly familiar--pays for Gemma's drink. And drugs it. They talk. Their hands touch. And before Gemma knows what's happening, Ty takes her. Steals her away. The unknowing object of a long obsession, Gemma has been kidnapped by her stalker and brought to the desolate Australian Outback. STOLEN is her gripping story of survival, of how she has to come to terms with her living nightmare--or die trying to fight it.

Stolen is one of those books that stays with you long after you finish it. It's really stunning, on so many levels. The description of the Austrailian Outback is so clear that you feel like you're right there with you and the way the story unfolds... I don't want to spoil anything for you, but wow. It will leave you breathless, and heartbroken, and triumphant, and most of all you will want to tell everyone you know to read this book!

GIVEAWAY
In honor of the spirit of Spread The Awesome, I'm going to giveaway ONE copy of Stolen to a reader who lives in any country the Book Depository ships to. That's right, this contest is INTERNATIONAL!

To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment with your email address (be sure to spell out @ as "at" and . as "dot" like this - name at email dot com - so you don't get hit by spambots). You MUST be a FOLLOWER to win!
