No parents. No rules. No way home.

Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn't be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand with her fellow Amelia Earhart Cadets-the daughters of the men and women stationed there during the Vietnam War. But when a strong current deposits the girls on what their boatman calls the "forbidden island," things take a turn for the worse: A powerful storm comes to destroy their campsite, the smallest of the junior cadets is found dead, and their boatman never returns. What once seemed like a vacation in paradise has become a battle against the elements.

Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie's journal, Lost Girls is a page-turning, heart-pounding adventure story about a group of teen girls fighting for their lives.
Survival = favorite pretty much. Can't wait for this one!

What are you waiting on?

Hmm, sounds a bit like Lord of the Flies with girls instead of boys. Might have to check that one out! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

A lot of people are comparing this to Lord of the Flies, which is apparently a good thing. I never read it, but know of it and that as well as this sound interesting.
