“Island, Book Two: Survival,” by Gordon Korman

“Island, Book Two: Survival,” by Gordon Korman is the second book in an exciting survival series about six teens marooned on a desert island.

When Luke, Lyssa, Will, Ian, J.J. and Charla were enrolled in the Charting a New Course program for troubled teens they never would have imagined that it would lead to them being shipwrecked and marooned on a desert island.

After floating on an improvised raft for days without any supplies the teens' first concern is to find food and water. But even when they find fruit and water there are other issues they must face. Two of the teens were separated during the accident and probably died. What is more, Will has lost his memory during the traumatic disaster and he runs away from the small group or survivors convinced that they are lying to him when they try to tell him about the shipwreck.

As if that isn't enough the teens then discover that the seemingly desolate island they are living on is used as a base by smugglers who will stop at nothing to hide their lucrative, but illegal trade.

“Island, Book Two: Survival,” is definitely action packed, but as I read it I felt that Gordon Korman went a little overboard. As the book goes on the plot becomes more and more complicated until it begins to border on the ridiculous. But even if the plot is a little unbelievable, the characters are still very realistic and well balanced. I think that Gordon Korman's “Island” series will surely thrill young readers.

AWESOME BOOK
Can NEVER PUT IT DOWN.
I think the plot should get 4 stars cause one guy looses his memory and they witness murder and are reunited with supposedly dead friends.

FOUR STARS!
