9780141323862: The Lost Island of Tamarind

Three children. Alone on the ocean waves, after a fierce storm throws their parents from the Pamela Jane into the icy waters below. Maya, Simon and Penny now face a wild rescue adventure that will lead them to a truly magical place . . .

Imagine an island with green mountains looming over pink sandy beaches and tide pools lit by the moon. An island with the darkest of secrets, where pirates lurk and jaguars roam - and a precious stone holds a power that is both wondrous and terrifying. This is where the children must go.

No one from the Outside has escaped the island before. Danger is everywhere. But they can't turn back now. Could you?

Review:

"The book's magic . . . lies in Aguiar's precise, often lyrical descriptions. A native and resident of Bermuda, she writes with authority about daily life in the tropics. . . . Aguiar uses her knack for realistic details equally well in the magical parts. . . . "The Lost Island of Tamarind" has a gentle spirit, tempering its dangers with warmth."--"The New York Times Book Review""" "Aguiar's exciting debut novel is a cross between "Peter P"an and "Lost" . . . Developed with seeming ease, each new character advances the plot logically and fluidly. The storytelling, intricate as it is, builds to a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. All signs point to a sequel--one that readers won't want to miss."--"Publishers Weekly""" "Each detail of this fantasy is crafted with care; readers will be drawn into this dangerous, magical world where anything is possible and nothing can be fully explained . . . Young people will be transported to a world so different from the one they current
