*In the very near future, on the tiny island of Lanai, teens from very different worlds must find a way to survive when technology is destroyed.*
Bea and Sam, Hawaiian kids isolated by a paranoid, alcoholic father, are thrown together with orphaned big-city pickpocket Nick when a disaster fries all technology. Aided by a mysterious `*aumakua* dragon that may or may not be Bea’s imaginary friend, the kids face fire, plane crashes, gangs, pit bulls, thieves, sharks, hunger, thirst and abuse in a coming-of-age that explores a post-technology world where only the strong and connected survive.
Island Fire.... unbelievable... I loved every moment of it. I was imagining seeing this in theaters and casting in my head!
My only complaint is that once again I am sleep deprived because I cannot put down your books. With Island Fire, I tried to go to sleep and I kept thinking about what might happen and I finally had to get up to read more. This is always the sign of a wonderful book, that the reader is so engrossed, so deeply enmeshed in the story and so invested that it is impossible to stop reading.
Island Fire is another fantastic page turner from Toby Neal. It sucked me in until the very end and I feel like I know each of the characters personally. I still have goosebumps thinking of everything. Definitely a must-read!
