Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn't be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand. But when a strong current sweeps Bonnie and her friends past their appointed campsite, depositing them instead on what the boatman calls a "forbidden island," they're just happy to have reached dry land.
Overnight, things take a turn for the worse. Three torturous days pass, but the boatman doesn't return, and what once seemed like a vacation in paradise becomes a battle against the elements.
Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie's journal as she struggles to survive, Lost Girls tells the page-turning, heart-pounding story of a group of teen girls fighting for their lives.
Praise for Lost Girls:
"Kelley's writing brings to life the slow, mounting terror of being stranded on an island. You can taste the coconuts as clearly as you can smell the stench of death in the air. Lost Girls is impossible to put down!"
—Galaxy Craze, author of The Last Princess
"A thrilling story of girls fighting the wild -- and the wildness within. I loved this dangerous tale and its brilliant, prickly heroine."
—Karen Healey, author of Guardian of the Dead and The Shattering
