The Island by CL Taylor


In my opinion...


What a pleasure !


I was a little concerned when I saw that this was a YA novel, as I am certainly not a young adult, except in my dreams 😊 but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.


The characters are clearly drawn, there is a strong plot with plenty of twists and red herrings that moves along at great speed and with a satisfactory ending.


On top of which the author sensitively tackles significant teenage issues.


A good read, and one that I certainly will be suggesting to people a touch younger than me!

Welcome to The Island.


Where your worst fears are about to come true…


It was supposed to be the perfect holiday: a week-long trip for six teenage friends on a remote tropical island.

But when their guide dies of a stroke leaving them stranded, the trip of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.

Because someone on the island knows each of the group’s worst fears. And one by one, they’re becoming a reality.

Seven days in paradise. A deadly secret.

Who will make it off the island alive?
