Waterstones Says

A group of teens find themselves abandoned on a sinister island with a mysterious stranger playing upon their darkest fears in this chilling YA page-turner from the author of Strangers.  

Lost meets The Hunger Games in the thrilling new young adult novel from C.L. Taylor, the Sunday Times and million-copy bestselling author.

***

Welcome to The Island.

Where your worst fears are about to come true...

It was supposed to be the perfect holiday: a week-long trip for six teenage friends on a remote tropical island.

But when their guide dies of a stroke leaving them stranded, the trip of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.

Because someone on the island knows each of the group's worst fears. And one by one, they're becoming a reality.

Seven days in paradise. A deadly secret.

Who will make it off the island alive?
