Latest Reads: The Island C L Taylor. (YA to watch in 2021)

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?

I rattled through this, it was HIGHLY addictive and I had a love hate relationship with all the characters- which this author always does to me whether shes writing adult novels brilliantly or young adult novels brilliantly.

A disparate group of teenagers all stuck on a desert island, trying to hang on until rescue but somebody seems determined to make that extremely difficult- but who and why?

Well you’ll eventually find out but before then you’ll have a rocketing read that will entirely grip you, it’s a bit like the Adventurous Four on acid – but also has some emotional themes explored really well so its a really clever and intense read that does genuinely keep you guessing.

I enjoyed it thoroughly and to date this author has never let me down no matter the target audience. Excellent stuff. Very much recommended. Put it on your 2021 lists immediately.

Happy reading!
