Lost meets The Hunger Games in this thrilling young-adult novel from C.L. Taylor, the Sunday Times and million-copy best-selling author. 

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?

Critic reviews

"Kept me awake long after I’d finished reading – terrifyingly good!" (Tamsyn Murray)

"A fantastic YA tale with a claustrophobic setting and a cast of characters who each have something to hide. I couldn’t put it down." (Chris McDonald)

Great read

this was a good easy read.

I did not see where it was going and I think it is good that it highlighted how different people cope with situations.
