Great Read-Aloud Book for Reading Class,
This review is from: Shipwreck (Island, Book 1) (Mass Market Paperback)
I teach freshmen in high school. Every day we have a thirty-minute reading time. I read this book to the class aloud, and they enjoyed it. The story is well-told, with good characters. The story takes a while to develop (perhaps because the author wrote it with a trilogy or series in mind), but once it gets going, it is compelling reading. We are now reading the second book. Good high-interest book for apathetic readers.
