Tragedy of five girls who can't seem to get a grip on life after being left to their own resources for 2-4 days on a island after the death of their counselor. Or maybe they never would have. They none of them seem particularly interesting or bighearted or attractive. ( )

An enjoyable, quick, lark of a book. It's a look into the lives of 5 girls after a traumatic event binds them together and simultaneously drives them apart. I really flew right through it, which unfortunately also means I didn't find a lot of emotional connection with the characters or situation. ( )

Some pre-teen girls have a bad camping trip then go on to live fairly normal lives. That’s the gist of this book. It would have made more sense to me if their lives had been impacted more significantly by the camping experience or if the girls had interacted as adults. I was pretty disappointed with the ending too. ( )

I liked this book....didn't love it. This is the story of 5 girls who become lost and stranded on a remote island while attending camp. They are all around 11 years old. The format of the book is to separate short chapters about what happened at camp with longer stories about each of the girls...their backstories and what happened to them as they reached adulthood. Through these stories, we witness how that experience affected their choices and personalities. Some were more affected than others. Because the girls had almost no contact with each other following their rescue, the book is more like a series of connected stories than a novel. It's well written and the characters are all engaging and well developed. ( )
