On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves

Our July book was On the Island by self published author Tracey Garvis Graves. This book was chosen because we wanted a light, summer-y pool book and that's exactly what we got. The majority of us read it in 1-2 days and it really was very hard to put down.
The story is about TJ and Anna who have the misfortune of being stranded on an island after a plane crash. It's a story about survival and complex relationships which is told from both TJ and Anna's points of view. The author flip flops chapters between Anna and TJ and I for one, loved this style because it allowed me to see what each person was thinking.
This was a truly enjoyable read even though it wasn't a literary masterpiece and everything seemed to always fall into place perfectly throughout the story, (not at all like the real world). We all decided we didn't want to pick this book apart and we loved it for what it was...a perfectly indulgent little Summer read that we all need now & then! Enjoy!
