Release Date: July 10 2012
Publisher: Little Brown for Young Readers
No parents. No rules. No way home.
Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn't be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand with her fellow Amelia Earhart Cadets-the daughters of the men and women stationed there during the Vietnam War. But when a strong current deposits the girls on what their boatman calls the "forbidden island," things take a turn for the worse: A powerful storm comes to destroy their campsite, the smallest of the junior cadets is found dead, and their boatman never returns. What once seemed like a vacation in paradise has become a battle against the elements.
Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie's journal, Lost Girls is a page-turning, heart-pounding adventure story about a group of teen girls fighting for their lives
|I will say that this was not one of my favorite reads of the year but it wad not horrible. Lost Girls was just a newer version of the classic story The Lord Of The Flies which I adored. Lost Girls was an easy read but it was not and thing special. Honestly all I kept thinking of while reading it was how much I wanted to 're read The Lord Of The Flies.|
The main character was easy to identify with and it is a good read to make you think about what you would do and how you would survive on an island with the bare minimum If not less.
The plot was a bit predictable and so was the ending. Like I said it was not a horrible read but it was predictable.
If you liked The Lord Of The Flies then you will enjoy Lost Girls but you will compare the two while you are reading it.
