I’m waiting for…

Title: The Island

Author: Natasha Preston

Genre: Young Adult, Mystery

Release Date: February 28, 2023


Hot on the heels of the New York Times bestsellers The Twin and The Lake, another pulse-pounding read from the undisputed queen of YA thrillers!

They said goodbye to their friends and family for the weekend. They weren’t counting on forever.

Jagged Island: a private amusement park for the very rich—or the very influential. Liam, James, Will, Ava, Harper, and Paisley—social media influencers with millions of followers—have been invited for an exclusive weekend before the park opens. They’ll make posts and videos for their channels and report every second of their VIP treatment.

When the teens arrive, they’re stunned: the resort is even better than they’d imagined. Their hotel rooms are unreal, the park’s themed rides are incredible, and the island is hauntingly beautiful. They’re given a jam-packed itinerary for the weekend.

But soon they’ll discover that something’s missing from their schedule: getting off the island alive.

What are you waiting for this week?


  1. The cover of this book is very atmospheric, I love it! Also absolutely love the description of the story. I really like that it features social media influencers, makes it a very timely story I think. Sounds like an exciting read!

  2. OOh nice! This one sounds intriguing! I think I’ve read one or two of this author! Definitely want to read more!

  3. I love the cover too. You know when there is an island on a cover that there probably is no way out.

  4. I’m also looking forward to this one! I love the isolated horror trope!

  5. This blurb reminds me of the book Ghostland by Duncan Ralston about a group of teens at the opening of a new amusement park filled with ghosts who are trying to escape the park. Sounds like it might feel similar. Hope you enjoy it!
