One girl...Three boys
Beautiful, rich, selfish Beth Atkinson is the undisputed queen of her new school and she won't give that up just to be someone's girlfriend.
Her loyal friend Milo and the intense Head Boy Edward both try to change her mind, but it's only when she meets gorgeous, charming Zack that she finally twigs what all the fuss is about.
She's in so deep with Zack, she can't see until it's too late that her careless choices effect everyone around her, wrecking the lives of her friends and propelling them all towards tragedy.

The Islanders is a Young Adult novel inspired by Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd.
Transported from 19thC Wessex to an isolated boarding school in Dorset in the 1980s and 90s, all of Hardy's characters have been reimagined by FJ Campbell as teenagers who fall in and out of love, keep secrets from one another and grow up fast.
Even if you know what happenned to Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors, you'll adore this new version of a classic coming-of-age story.
