The Island

Olivia Levez

There were friends once, but they melted away. Things are different now I’m a monster.

Frances is alone on a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. She has to find water and food. She has to survive. And when she is there she also thinks about the past. The things that she did before. The things that made her a monster.

Nothing is easy. Survival is hard. And so is being honest about the past. Frances is a survivor though and she sees that the future is worth fighting for.

The Island is a gripping and thoughtful story about a girl who didn’t ask to be the person she is but is also determined to make herself the person she wants to be.

All is not lost but some things are hard to find.
