On The Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

5 stars

I loved this book and really hope that they make it into a movie. This is a wonderful story of survival and a strong and enduring bond of love that develops between these two beautifully drawn characters.

TJ is a sixteen year old cancer survivor who is on his way with his tutor for the summer, thirty year old Anna Emerson, to meet his family in the Maldive islands. The charter plane they are on crashes in the Indian Ocean and the pilot is killed. They wash ashore on a deserted island and must find a way to survive until help arrives. Only it doesn't...

I don't want to give too much away, I'll just say this was a riveting read that taps every emotion.
