Island of Thieves

by Josh Lacey

Release Date: 2013-10-08

“Only boring people get bored…Interesting people can always find something to be interested in.” That’s what Tom Trelawney’s father says, anyway. Tom shouldn’t have been interested in playing with matches but he was…bored. Now the shed is in ashes and strange Uncle Harvey is the only one willing to have him stay while his parents vacation Tom soon discovers Harvey is going to South America on a treasure hunt and though nephews aren’t invited, he manages to tag along. Before it’s over he’ll drive a car, fire a gun and run for his life. Tom realizes that life may be about following the rules, but survival may be about breaking them.

I just received this book, and haven’t had a chance to read it yet. In the meantime, check out these blog reviews for this book:

Big Thanks to HMH Books for Young Readers for sending me a copy of this book!!

AND as always, big thanks to you for popping by to see what I was rambling on about. LOL

Hope you have a great weekend.

Just a reminder, I usually post pics of the books I get right as I get them on to my facebook page and my instagram so make sure to click over and LIKE the page – then you’ll see what books I get as I get them instead of waiting till I do a “book haul” video. I’ll still do haul videos every couple of weeks, too. So… yeah. All righty then.
