Scar Island

by Dan Gemeinhart

 

 

 

Scar Island by Dan Gemeinhart is the perfect book for reluctant middle school readers. This gripping adventure story is an easy read (Lexile rating of 610).

Twelve year old Jonathan has been sent to the Slabhenge Reformatory School for Troubled Boys. Jonathan thinks he deserves going to to this remote island just large enough to house the crumbling stone school that was once an asylum for the terrible thing he did. Just a few chapters into the book, a lightning strike kills all the adults. The boys struggle for leadership roles as a hurricane hits the island.

This page-turner contains chapter-after-chapter ending in cliffhangers. I found myself not being able to put the book down.
