What’s Hot: Isle of the Lost
Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz
I was a little surprised when a brand new book in a series flew off the shelves. I hadn’t heard much buzz about “Isle of the Lost,” before it came out. From what I could see, it was another twist on fairytale life meets modern day. Then I realized I should have been watching Disney Channel.
The book is a “prequel” to a movie called “The Descendants,” that is coming out on Disney Channel. In the movie, all the fairytale villians have been banished to an island, along with their children. It’s these “descendants,” who are the focus of the story. Are they going to follow in their parent’s footsteps or will they become heros?
I’m a bit burned out on this type of book, but the kids seem to be eating it up.
What do you think?
