In the very near future, on the tiny island of Lanai, teens from very different worlds must find a way to survive when technology is destroyed.
Bea and Sam, Hawaiian kids isolated by a paranoid, alcoholic father, are thrown together with orphaned big-city pickpocket Nick when a disaster fries all technology. Aided by a mysterious `aumakua dragon that may or may not be Bea’s imaginary friend, the kids face fire, plane crashes, gangs, pit bulls, thieves, sharks, hunger, thirst and abuse in a coming-of-age that explores a post-technology world where only the strong and connected survive.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I can’t say enough good about this book!! Loved the well written story, as always by Toby Neal! Certainly want and expect these characters to become a very successful series of books; as soon as I finished I wanted to start the next one!
This is an amazing story of adventure, courage, survival, love, family and friendship. This may be my first Toby Neal book but it is far from my last.
Toby, a Grand Slam! Great characters, great plot, great location! Great! Great! Great! I haven’t been a “young adult” for several decades but with this book age doesn’t matter! I can’t wait for the second in the series!
Toby Neal does it again with a brand new series. This book was great, another fast read that holds your attention throughout. Great characters and lots of Hawaiian folklore.
I devour anything Toby writes, she is such a talented author. This is an amazing story filled with ingenuity, intrigue, and action. The characters are well developed, as with any of her novels, and the story really draws you in. I read the book in a couple of hours, I couldn’t put it down! It’s not just for young adults.
