by Elle Casey.
I liked this book better than I thought I would. I'm not usually one for stories about maturing teenagers but this one was just nice. Four teenagers (two sets of brother and sister) take a cruise together and end up stranded on a deserted tropical island. One brother-sister combo are the popular, rich kids while the other set are more nerd types and don't have lots of friends. Well the rich kids learn to not be so shallow and the nerds learn more self-confidence and soon enough, romance flies. When you add the strain of trying to survive on an island, you find yourself rooting for everyone as they go along. Elle Casey did an excellent job of making you relate to and care for the characters without losing anything in the plot. A talented author to watch out for!
