I did not expect to like this book so much! Chapters alternate between the sisters being stranded on the deserted island, and flashbacks to the time, months before, when their relationship was wrecked. Little by little, the author leads us to discover what happened to ruin their close relationship, making this novel impossible to put down. The characters are realistic and the settings lushly described. This is a wonderful young adult book that is great for people of all ages.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
The book starts off with Alex, Emma and Henri already washed up on shore and it counts back to what happened before that and how they ended up on shore a few times through out the book.
I honestly didn't think I would enjoy or even like this and it's not like I loved it when I finished it but it was enough to make me at least finish the book. I'm just not a huge fan of contemporary (I have to be in the mood for it) and I'm not one who really cares too much about sibling elements.
Though out the first half of the book Emma (the main character) hints she did something "horrible" to Henri to make her act the way she does towards her. I know sibling problems can be pretty petty but by the way Henri was acting it made it seem like Emma cut off her arm or killed her dog or something. Neither of which was the case. As Henri goes off to do her petty shady stuff Emma and Alex grow closer; and I mean why wouldn't they. At least someone is trying to help them survive instead of working on a tan WHEN THEY'RE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND.
The thing that kept me reading was ridiculous crap Henri kept pulling; just how far would she take her pettyness? And what crap would she pull this time? I kept waiting for Emma to wisen up and just tell her off already! The fact that Henri tried so hard to get Emma to question Alex who's done nothing but try to help them survive is insanity!
I obviously wasn't a fan of Henri and her toxicness. I don't care what she ends up doing to make up for it but what she put Emma and Alex through in my opinion was selfish and unforgivable and was way worse compared to what Emma did to her which if you ask me, Henri deserved what Emma did! Their whole lives she's just been stringing Emma along just to ditch her and she couldn't have the decency to be happy for her if the time ever came. Henri is just selfish and Emma deserved better than the way her SISTER treated her!
I'm obviously triggered.
