The Island Mystery

Saturday, December 31, 2011
“How about it, kids? Which one of you will go?”

Book: The Island Mystery by Janet Bly, Chariot Books, 1985
Genre: Adventure (Choose Your Own Adventure Book)
Target Audience: Boys 11-13
Subjects: Trust in God
Summary: It’s an exciting opportunity –a  trip to Hawaii to present a computer game so good it got the attention of an international cooperation. But before they arrive, the characters face some pretty extreme choices. Bad guys chasing after them lead to decisions such as running for your life and fighting off strange creatures in a cave.
Notes: This is a “Choose your own adventure book” with a new option nearly every page. There is very little spiritual elements in the book although in one of the endings the main character does share his faith with someone.
Recommendation Scale2/5

Proverbs 16:16 –How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!
