Shipwrecked

How did I get it?:
I bought it!

Synopsis:

This is the first book in a major new series. “Lost” meets “Gossip Girl”. I jump at the sound of a whispered voice over my shoulder. But when I turn all I see is sand, and the towering, green wall of the rainforest. I guess it must have been the breeze, but I can’t help shivering. I have the weirdest feeling we’re being watched. 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 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 . . . Shipwrecked is a heartpounding new series from rising star Siobhan Curham. Combining romance, mystery, secrets, betrayal and even voodoo in a steamy, tropical island setting, these books for teens promise to set the pulse racing.

Thoughts:

My first experience of reading Siobhan Curham’s writing was the fantastic Finding Cherokee Brown which was recommended as a book that my friend Luna and I compared. See our review HERE. Luna went on to read Shipwrecked and I remember reading how much she enjoyed it. It was an automatic must buy for me. I’ve finally got around to reading it and I’m so glad I added it to my basket. Shipwrecked is an intriguing, easy to read book.

I wasn’t sure what to make of the whole Lost meets Gossip Girl statement. I’m a huge fan of Gossip Girl… Lost not so much. The plot of Shipwrecked grabbed me immediately though. I found it completely unpredictable which is always nice. It kept me reading, devouring page after page. I found Siobhan Curham’s writing in Shipwrecked quite chilling. It was completely different to Finding Cherokee Brown, which shows just how talented a writer she is. I’m so glad Shipwrecked is a series, because it ended on quite a cliff-hanger and I NEED to know what happens next to these characters.

Siobhan Curham has definitely become one of my auto-buy writers. I can’t wait to read what she writes next, and in the meantime I’ll be sure to check out Siobhan’s other work!
