On the Island  - Tracey Garvis-Graves
Age is REALLY just a number when your a thirty-year-old woman stuck on an uninhabited island with a sixteen-year-old boy. Don't worry, it's not what you think, there's no physical contact between the two until he is of age.

I couldn't decided whether or not to give this book 3 stars or 4, because there were some parts that I thought deserved 4 stars for sure. After giving myself time to think about it, I settled on 3 stars. I was hoping for more of those creative survival scenes. Ya know, making useful things like MacGyver did, buuuttt... I was impressed with the bow drill he made to start fires with, however.

I don't know why I didn't like it as much as everyone else seems to, including some of my favorite authors, although they may just be supporting the fact that Tracey Garvis-Graves self-published this book. Which is amazing, by the way. It seems this novel was also selected to be made into a movie, but I don't know what happened there.

My favorite part of the whole book was the Dirty Dancing lift, of course. It was only a few sentences long, but that was one of those great moments you happen to come across every now and then.

It was a good read and well-executed for the author's first book.
