The Castaways by Jessika Fleck

4.5 Stars

The Castaways by Jessika Fleck caught me by surprise. The blurb sounds amazing and I was ready to follow Olive Gagmuehler anywhere on her adventure. I thought I was going to like it, but then in chapter three we meet her tormentors… they were really cruel (and I’m really softhearted) so I thought that I might be adding this to my DNF pile. Luckily/unluckily she escapes her bullies via corn maze and ends up on the island.

This book should have been tagged as a Peter Pan retelling, because it seriously felt like Neverland. Once Olive arrived on the island, I fell in love with it and couldn’t put it down. It is one of those books where I was still reading at 3AM and only put it down because my husband was giving me the side-eye (understandable since he had to be up in 2 hours). This is a true adventure with well thought out characters. I enjoyed them all and would love a sequel/prequel/alterative POV… anything. I couldn’t believe this was Jessika Fleck’s first book, and I can’t wait to read what she comes up with next.
