Island Games by Caleb J Boyer, is marketed for a Young Adults, but I think that’s inaccurate. I typically enjoy YA novels (judge me, if you like) but this was not what I was expecting and I am not a fan. I rarely write negative reviews, opting instead for the “be nice or be quiet” motto that my momma drilled into us as children, but I have decided an honest review is worthwhile. I can’t only tell y’all about stuff I like. If I find something I don’t enjoy, I should be open enough to share that with you as well. Bonus: I could actually save you some time and money!
