Description

Wonderful day, wonderful island -THE WRONG ISLAND, but who cares?

For Bonnie MacDonald it didn't matter that they'd blown off course, she and her friends were off on an adventure to a beautiful tropical island. And there were no parents or teachers to spoil things. There was Layla Campbell, of course, but she didn't count as a proper grown-up-she was so cool, so beautiful, and treated the girls as equals, not like children.

But how can a place go from paradise to hell in just one night? How can life go from being a wonderful adventure to a desperate struggle to survive?
