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.  

Shortlisted for the CWA Dagger in the Library 2021

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?
