Synopsis:

Right before Sadie died, she begged her sister, Ruby, to do the one thing she could never do herself: Find the treasure on Gray Wolf Island.


With just a mysterious treasure map as a guide, Ruby reluctantly allows some friends to join her on the hunt, each of whom is touched by magic: a boy allegedly born to a virgin, a girl who never sleeps, a boy who can foresee his own death, and a boy with deep ties to the island. Each of them is also keeping a secret—something they’ll have to reveal in order to reach the treasure.


As the secrets come to light, Ruby will have to decide: Can she make peace with her friends’ troubled pasts and continue to trust them? Can she forgive herself for doing the unspeakable? Deep in the wilderness of Gray Wolf Island, Ruby’s choices will determine if they make it out with the treasure—or merely with their lives.


From debut author Tracey Neithercott comes a darkly compelling tale of profound friendship, adventure, and finding the strength to tell the truth.


Review:


Thank you Random House Young Readers for sending me a copy of Gray Wolf Island for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

Gray Wolf Island is a mystery treasure hunt adventure with eerie undertones. This is the perfect read to warm up by the fire with cup of hot coca. This book will appeal to fans of so many genres including: Mystery, Thriller, Contemporary, and Paranormal.

The beginning of this book starts of very emotional. Especially with me being an identical twin I definitely related and it pulled at my heart. It was a very short intro a year before but it had such an impact. 

Ruby is the twin who made a promise to her sister to find the treasure on Gray Wolf Island. She enlists a few friends along the way including Elliot who is the hot bad boy. I also really liked daredevil Charlie. His character was the more fearless type but that is probably because he thinks he is going to die on Gray Wolf Island. So he thinks he has nothing to fear.

We get another POV in Cooper a boy who wakes up on the island and can not remember who he even is. His POVs were a lot darker then Ruby's and were less frequent but made the mystery to the island and what happened heightened.

If you love adventures then you will love this one. 






About Tracey:


My first book was written by hand and illustrated with some really fancy colored pencils. It was highly acclaimed by my mother. Now, I write YA stories of friendship, love, murder, and magic. (None of which I illustrate—you’re welcome.) I live in Massachusetts with my husband, who suggests improving my novels by adding Star Wars characters.
I’m the author of Gray Wolf Island, a YA novel about the truth, a treasure, and five teens searching for both. Coming fall 2017 from Knopf/Random House.
