The Islanders Adventure Collection (Boxed Set): The Islanders; Search for Treasure; Shipwrecked
The first three books in the heartwarming middle grade The Islanders series from New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe centering on friendship and the healing power of nature are now together in a hardcover boxed set.
Eleven-year-old Jake’s life has just turned upside-down. His father was wounded in Afghanistan, and his mother is going to leave to care for him. That means Jake’s spending the summer on tiny Dewees Island with his grandmother. The island is a nature sanctuary—no cars, paved roads, stores, or restaurants. To make matters worse, Jake’s grandmother doesn’t believe in cable or the internet. Which means Jake has no cell phone, no video games…and no friends.
He’s barely on the island before he befriends two other kids—Macon, another “summer kid,” and Lovie, a know-it-all who lives there and shows both Jake and Macon the ropes of life on the island. All three are struggling with their own family issues and they quickly bond, going on adventures all over Dewees Island.
One of their exploits lands them in community service, where they end up protecting the local loggerhead sea turtles. In following summers, the three friends go treasure hunting and end up stranded at sea after an ill-fated fishing trip. Together, they weather changing family dynamics and learn all about nature and local wildlife.
