The thrilling conclusion to the Island series, this book doesn't slack off the action one bit. In fact, it pretty much increases.

Reunited with their lost friends, and with Will’s memory returned, there are new problems for the six castaways to face. Will, though his mind is back to normal, has now suffered an accidental gunshot wound to the leg. Moreover, the six have discovered an abandoned army base from W.W. II, and an atomic bomb, which was left forgotten after it was never deployed. With no medical help for Will’s leg, and the chance that the ruthless smugglers may discover and kill them any day, the castaways are thrown into the most desperate and suspenseful book yet. They must truly become a working team, and all of them must contribute their unique skills to keeping the group alive. But when it falls to J.J., the flaky movie star’s son, to save them all, will the kid who’s never taken them or their situation seriously be able to carry out his pivotal duty? A very satisfying ending to this riveting and inspiring series!

The island book continues with another adventure. So far, the six castaways have been stranded on a small island. They tried to survive this long, but nobody came to help. There are smugglers on the island and they know they’re not alone. Will is one of the kids on the island, but he is really injured. Will needs medical help right away. Will they ever get off the island the island on time? I like this book because it has lot of cool parts to the book. The best part was when J.J. fought one of the smugglers. The worst part was when Luke was caught and was beaten. The funniest part was when the castaways tricked the smuggler with the shadows. It was a very interesting book. I like the twist when there was a hidden bomb on the island. You should get this book if you like survival books. ( )
