* "The story is action-packed with realistic characters and an unusual setting. This is an adventure story readers will wish to read more than once, a must for your survival fans."—Library Media Connection (starred review)

"Kelly's writing brings to life the slow, mounting terror of being stranded on an island. You can taste the coconuts as clearly as you can smell the stench of death in the air. Lost Girls
is impossible to put down!"—Galaxy Craze, author of The Last Princess
"A thrilling story of girls fighting the wild - and the wildness within. I loved this dangerous tale and its brilliant, prickly heroine."—Karen Healey, author of Guardian of the Dead and The Shattering
