This book was very badly written and couldn't deal with it any longer and would have just given it a one star but i gave it two because i liked the plot, but Lucy Christopher could have used a different way of using it. Typical kidnappings dont always happen in australia (i know cos i live there) and not always in the outback. We have certain laws before we live in the outback. And they usually go by farmers. They would have suspected this sooner or later when Ty wasn't around.
