Book Review - On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Sixteen years old TJ and his thirty years-old tutor Anna survived a plane crashed, and ended up on a remote island by themselves...

The beginning was a little slow, then I got into the story once they were on the remote island trying to survive. The last part of the book was a little slow again...

This is probably a bit more chicklit-ish for my taste, though it did make me wonder how I'd handle the situation if I were Anna (esp since I'm just a few years older than her). Made me think of the TV show Lost (though with just 2 people, instead of a whole plane load of them, and no weird stuff like time traveling happening lol :))

Good beach read... well or at least I hope I was at the beach during this colder weather now... okay maybe NOT a totally remote island beach though :)

3 Stars. It's okay for light reading.

Note - The book was borrowed from the library.
