An Unusual Island by [Finn, D.L.]

When Janine’s parents win a vacation to a private island, it’s the same week as her and her twin brother’s 16th birthday. Cool! She can’t wait to lounge on the beach and let the staff pamper her! Much to her disappointment, though, they leave the island to go sightseeing on a boat. Unlike the rest of her family, bouncing around the ocean isn’t her idea of fun. Even when her brother gets their dad to stop the boat to investigate the neon sea creature that he is sure is following them–nothing. Losing her new red hat is the highlight of her trip until an unexpected storm hits, and they shipwreck on an uncharted island. After tending to some wounds from the crash, they search the island in hopes of finding human civilization. Although they don’t find what they are looking for, it appears they aren’t alone. When they return to their campsite—a fully cooked dinner is waiting for them! Why? And a better question is why did they eat it? It was as if they stepped into a fairytale– or nightmare. Who is on the island with them and what do they want?

  1. My review for Tails by W.J. Scott–
    A tale to keep readers wanting more! 3/3

    I received a paperback copy of Tails from author W/ J. Scott some time also. In this middle-grade fantasy tale, Kywah has lost his tail to a hunter, and now the hunters are back to get the rest of his pack’s tails. Since Kywah has nothing left to interest the hunters, it’s up to him to make his way through the gauntlet and find the Wise One so that he can find the Deep Magic that will save his pack.

    Tails is a high-interest story with messages that provide excellent discussion points for M/G and YA readers. Themes include facing your fears and meeting challenges that may seem impossible and putting others first. This is a wonderful adventure story that families and classrooms can enjoy together. I highly recommend Tails as a read-aloud. Readers and listeners are sure to enjoy the graphic images that accompany the story as well. Scott has conjured up a winner for Book 1 in a series that is sure to keep us wanting more. ~Bette A. Stevens, author of award-winning children’s picture book AMAZING MATILDA and other books for children and adults.
