ALA Booklist reviews ISLANDS

This just in: ALA Booklist’s August reviews. I’m pleased with their strong review of ISLANDS AT THE END OF THE WORLD. Full reviews on their site are intended for subscribers only, but I’m happy to share a few lines:

“…This well-paced novel successfully provokes a palpable sense of urgency, and the mystery surrounding the nature of the “Emerald Orchid” and the hope that Leilani’s family will be reunited drive the narrative forward effectively. Aslan has developed his protagonist fully; Leilani is admirable yet flawed, and readers will connect with her struggle to fit in both as an ethnic minority in her community and as an epileptic. Teens should enjoy this utterly unique eco-thriller and eagerly await its sequel.”
