"AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! I'm not sure how to begin this review and remain professional... so I'll just be honest. I FUDGING loved this book! (SOOO SOOO MUCH!) It was fantastic!" (Nancy Figueroa, Tumbling Books)
"Wrecked is a well written, well paced, novel that not only has action and adventure...but also has plenty for those who are fans of romance, comedy, and drama." (www.aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com)
"Elle can write her butt off...the characters of Wrecked had me interested right away. I was hooked and couldn't stop reading until I knew what would happen to them. These aren't your typical dumb kids - they're intelligent and witty. Their dialogue had me smiling the entire way through the book. They were at times smart and funny, then clumsy and embarrassing as teenagers often are. I even found myself relating to one of the characters, the geeky Jonathon." (Author Jason Brant)

"Not all there"
Audio stops after just a few minutes. No way to reload it. Need option to re!oad.
"Fun, adventurous story"
I listened to the audible version of this book and the narration was fantastic. Arielle DeLisle really made the characters come alive for me. I'm sure I would have enjoyed reading the book just as much, though.
I love the characters and their very distinct personalities. Though some are not very likeable at first, once you get to know them, they become more endearing, which is actually the premise of the story. Don't be so quick to judge others before you actually know them. When trouble arises, it is their unique individual qualities that help them overcome adversity.
Though this story is written at a young teen level, there is a bit too much strong language and sexual content for that age group, in my opinion. I think it would be better suited for a more mature or older teen, but as a senior grandma, I enjoyed it. Looking forward to reading the sequel.
I loved this story as a young adult story! The characters are fun and you learn so much about them; Candi, Sarah, Kevin, and Jonathan. The narrator did a great job of moving from one voice to the next and distinguishing between them was easy! Elle Casey is a great story teller and I love ALL her books that I have had the pleasure of reading!
Great characterization between male/female characters.
Recommend if you like fun, light-hearted, young adult, adventurous novels!
"Loved the story"
This story was so cute and not too cute there was some like cussing like sexual moments like murderous thoughts and just that perfect combination between being too much of a kid book for an adult to enjoy and 2 not pg-rated 4 the younger generation to enjoy excellent job.
"I really enjoyed myself!"
Glad I read
hmm. I haven't read any other 'shipwrecked' or 'trapped on an island' books, but i guess it could kind of compare to "Blue Lagoon"
Sometimes I couldn't tell which character was talking because the voices are kind of similar, but the narrator was pretty good!
When Kevin tells the group his secret, instead of getting mad at him, the group all accepted his apology and vowed to not keep anymore secrets between them because they are family now.
This was a nice turn away from the 'insta love' books. Yeah, the Buckley's kind of had crushes on the Patterson's, but they let the relationship develop before they got all cozy. I think this type of read would be good for all ages, not just young adult.
PLUS** If you ever get stranded on a uninhabited island, you have a few factoids and tips and tricks!!
It was a cute story that was a nice distraction on the morning commute. Will get the second one to find out what happens.
This was a fun story. A little silly at times, but I enjoyed getting to know the characters and listening to their adventures!
"great book Arielle was awesome"
Arielle was awesome and I could not stop listening to her voce. Can't wait for book 2
"Hooks you from the first word"
I LOVED this book! The story was totally gripping, I never thought that I would have been so hooked on a story about a bunch of school kids- it was such a pleasant "read" and made my trips to and from the office much more pleasant. It was funny, sad, scary and thrilling all in one. The voice over artist was fantastic, I have listened to many books and I found her to be the easiest to listen to by far. Now if only I could get Reckless on Audible too!!
