I am 58 years old and read espionage, adventure and thriller books. This book held my attention from beginning to end. It is well written and the story is almost believable. In some cases I could visualize myself being there. The author's description of characters and general scenery is very good and not boring. I look forward to her next book

Tgis booknis bybfar one of the best books I have ever read, a close second to Percy Jackson. This book is full of action and adventure and jam packed with suspension.

Maya, her baby sister, Penny;, and younger brother Simon are left alone on the ship which they were raised. Their parents were thrown overboard during a storm. In an attempt to find their parents they look for a place to dock and happen upon the lost o island of Tamarind. Actually it's one of the outer islands. The story is a fast paced adventure that embroils the reader immediately. Join this other "world" of Tamarind. Nadia's descriptions are vibrant and ensconce the reader firmly in this other-worldly Tamarind. The journey through the forest with carnivorous plants, the depiction of the pirates and the scenery are excellent. I loved this book. I do have a criticism and it was the only element that kept it from being at the top of my list of favorite books. She describes the scenery, technology, infrastructure and housing in a way that made me feel like technologically it was confused. The island of Tamarind should not have a bathtub with hot running water, cars and guns, but houses with dirt floors instead of wood or tile, and wash tubs instead of washing machines. I recommend this well written fantasy novel. ????1/2

Just a great read for the fun of it! Lots of suspense and twists and turns, very captivating. Slight flaws in nominal details, but the story is lovable. Can't wait for the sequel!

Thirteen-year-old Maya Nelson would like nothing more than to live on land, go to school, and sit at an actual table to eat a meal once in a while. Her outgoing younger brother, Simon, may be fine with living on a boat and traveling the world with their marine biologist parents, but lately, Maya's grown tired of having no privacy and none of the normal things kids should have. Her situation has only gotten worse since Penny was born, making the small boat even more cramped. But Maya has a plan: after they drop off the new round of wildlife samples at the Marine Station, they'll be heading to Bermuda to visit Grandma Pearl, and Maya has made her parents promise to talk to her grandmother about letting Maya stay on land for awhile - at least long enough to go to school and make some friends for the first time in her life. But then their boat, the Pamela Jane, hits a terrible storm, and Maya's parents are swept overboard. Now with damaged instruments, no radio contact, and no sense of where they are, Maya and Simon somehow manage to land the Pamela Jane on an island and immediately begin to look for help. However, no sooner have they wrapped up Penny, gathered some supplies, and stepped off the boat do they realize that they've ended up in a place like no other. Deadly jungle creatures, pirates patrolling the waters, and a witch who steals children are not the only things plaguing the hidden island of Tamarind, but Maya and her siblings will have to band together and draw on every ounce of strength they have if they ever want to find their parents...and avoid staying on the island for a long, long time. With dynamic and incredibly resourceful main characters coupled with an intriguing storyline that spreads beyond the boundaries of the page, this book is bound to captivate any young reader who loves a good adventure. It holds its own among other popular tales of castaways, with a bit of magic and mystery mixed in.
