    The Island Trilogy Review

    When the captain dies, the boat starts sinking, the mate leaves the kids to fend for themselves, the engine stops working. The boat bursts to into flames. The teenagers must rely on the resources of the jungle and the comfort of each other.
    The Island trilogy is a simply wonderful series.
    It’s about six teenagers who get shipwrecked on an island that’s not on any map anywhere. Can they survive all alone on a deserted island, is teamwork going enough to survive, can six teenagers take care of someone who is injured, hide from smugglers, find food, water, and still get rescued? I gave the Island trilogy a solid 4 stars. It brought me pure enjoyment. I love the fact that it shows even the most selfish of them all can make a change for the better. True teamwork is not when ALMOST everyone helps, its when EVERYONE helps. When they met they thought the couldn’t be more different..... but they have more in common than they think.

    Shipwreck Island Series 1

    Shipwreck Island is the first book in a series of adventure novels written by author Gordon Korman. Six children along with their Captain, eager to teach them about sailing, and his highly unpopular assistant deemed "rat-face". The children, Luke, J.J., Lyssa, Charla, and Ian find themselves aboard the Phoenix, a ship, that houses a 30 day program. The children have been elected by their parents and in Luke's case the judge to complete the program CNC, Charting New Territories, because of bad decisions. This program aims to reshape the children and teach them a few valuable life lessons. The trip takes a disasterous turn in which the children are left alone at sea fighting for survival. Their Captain dies at sea, "rat-face" abandons them, and their ship is swallowed by the sea after catching fire. This novel proves a great read for young adults looking for adventure.

    It was boring and good at the same time

    I thought that because some times there were a lot of events happening, some times there wasn't any. An example is when they are on the boat and one page they are sleeping the next they are blistering their hands pulling ropes and then eating. that is why I thought this book is boring and good at the same time.

    A Wonderful Book

    Luke was accused of having a gun at school. For his punishment he had to go on a boat for three months. While on the boat the people that watched the kids disappeared. They were left alone and had to live on their own. I recommend this book to everyone.
