Betrayal and forbidden love, beneath a seething sun…

Grace Delaney and her fellow dance students are en route to perform on a South Pacific cruise ship when a freak storm hits and they find themselves stranded on a seemingly deserted island.

With the tropical heat rising, passions and tensions swell to breaking point. And the island itself is quietly steaming with a terrible secret...


When Grace Delaney and seven members of her prestigious dance school are chosen to perform a long term gig on a South Pacific cruise ship, life seems wonderful.

En route to their new gig their smaller boat is met by a terrible storm and they are shipwrecked on a deserted island.

What follows is an insight into human emotions in what the publishers call Gossip Girl Meets Lost - which is fairly accurate.

With the tropical heat rising, so are the groups secrets, tensions and passions.

Mix this with voodoo and we have a totally enjoyable and engrossing teen read.

Unfortunately we are left with the discovery of a boat and a hope of rescue, but this will have to wait for Book 2. Worth the wait, I think!

Best enjoyed by 15+ readers.

This book was included in our October 2013 Secondary Standing Order selection.
