Far From The Madding Crowd, teenager-style.
With sex and drugs.
With parties, holidays, school plays, pranks and rugby matches.

With lust and friendship.
With love.
But with whom?

Weatherbury Hall is a boarding school in the countryside of south-west England that's so remote and cut off, its pupils call it 'The Island'.
Beth's new in the sixth form at The Island, but has no problem fitting in - she's cool, rich, clever and beautiful. She meets three very different boys: staff child Milo is sweet but a bit boring; head boy Edward is handsome but there's no spark. When Beth meets Zack, he blows her away - he's gorgeous and she'll do anything for him. But Beth has a secret which is making her life even more complicated. She needs to make the right choice and decide what - and who - is important in her life.

It has the potential to be a classic. Matt Rudd, journalist and author
The Islanders is a fantastic read - a sexy, intelligent, romantic story about the lives and loves of a group of teenagers at a boarding school. It is sure to appeal to fans of E Lockhart. Sam Mills, author

A young adult novel inspired by Thomas Hardy's classic love story, Far from the Madding Crowd.

Readers will adore this beautiful retelling of a timeless coming-of-age story, even if they know what happened to Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors.
