Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-In the sequel (Scholastic, 2001) to Gordon Korman's Shipwreck (Scholastic, 2001), four shipwrecked teens who were on a month-long trip for youngsters with disciplinary problems arrive on a seemingly deserted island searching for food and shelter. About halfway through the story, the group reunites with two other teens who also survived the boating accident. When a plane lands on the island, the teens witness a murder and decide it would be dangerous to come out of hiding. The men are smugglers dealing in ivory tusks and rare animal parts. In addition, the island once housed a military base during WWII and is still home to the third atomic bomb. There are numerous neat coincidences, but they do add suspense to the story. Holter Graham's narration is pleasant, but he provides few unique voices for the characters. Those new to the series will have no trouble following the plot and will eagerly await the next volume.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, AL (c) Copyright 2010.

Gordon Korman was born in Montreal, Canada on October 23, 1963. When his 7th-grade English teacher told the class they could have 45 minutes a day for four months to work on a story of their choice, Korman began This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall. He was also the class monitor for the Scholastic TAB Book Club, so he sent his novel to the address on the TAB flyer, and a few days after his 14th birthday, he had a book contract with Scholastic.

By the time he graduated from high school, he had published five other novels and several articles for Canadian newspapers. He received a BFA degree from New York University with a major in Dramatic Writing and a minor in Film and TV. He has written over 75 books for children and young adults including the Swindle series, The Juvie Three, and two books of poetry written by the fictional character Jeremy Bloom.
