Description

Sarah Robinson is deeply troubled in the wake of her dad's second marriage. She now has to deal with a new stepmom and two stepbrothers, Marco, who is her age, and Nacho, who's younger. Even though they've all moved from Texas to California to start life as a new, blended family, none of the kids seem remotely happy about it. Sarah's dad and stepmom then decide to take the whole family on a special vacation in order to break the ice and have everyone get to know one another. They'll fly to Tahiti, charter a boat, and go sailing for a few days. It'll be an adventure, right? Wrong. Dead wrong.
Shipwreck Island is the first installment in a series from S. A. Bodeen.

Review quote

"A fractured family goes on a sailing trip to bind its wounds, and disaster ensues . . . should leave readers plenty impatient for the next volume." --BCCB "Narrative tension runs high as the kids try to adjust to their new life and the stress of their disastrous vacation . . . this adventure just gets going when the book comes to an end, leaving the story wide open for a sequel." --Booklist "In this exciting series debut, 12-year-old Sarah Robinson responds with ill-grace to her father's remarriage after six year as a widower . . . Intensely readable and will be excellent for reluctant readers." --School Library Journal "The first in a series, a contemporary castaway tale featuring a blended family . . . This book will leave readers hungry for a second helping." --Kirkus
