Nightmare Island

We rated this book:


This book is amazing! One of my new personal favorites. Nightmare Island by Shakirah Bourne is about a twelve-year-old filmmaker: Serenity. Serenity has always been the least favorite child; her perfect brother, Peace, is her best friend but she is so jealous of him. Nothing he does is ever wrong. When Peace starts getting paralyzed with fear whenever it is dark, her parents take him to Dubby Island for treatment, but something isn’t right.

Dr. Whisper gives Serenity a bad feeling, and ever since Peace has been getting treatments, he has been treating Serenity like she is a monster. Dubby Island is also home to Douens: creatures of ancient folklore with no faces and backwards feet. Serenity better find a way to save everyone on Dubby Island before everyone she loves becomes douens.

I rate this book five out of five stars! It did an amazing job of tying in horror with an age-appropriate pre-teen book. This book is definitely meant for people ages eleven to fourteen. It has an amazing storyline and awesome plot. Nightmare Islaland is going to fly right off the shelves when it is released!
