Scar Island

Written by Dan Gemeinhart

This is a book about a group of boys spending time in a facility for troubled boys. Jonathan is the newest arrival but the morning after his arrival, a freak accident leaves all the adults dead and the boys on their own. The newfound freedom is great at first but then things start to go wrong. In the end Jonathan is able to come to terms with his past and lead the boys to safety when storm threatens the island. The book will appeal to boys and anyone who enjoyed Lord of the Flies.
