Musings of a Bibliomaniac

Goodreads immigrant. Another victim of corporate tyranny. I blog at Musings of a Bibliomaniac along with my co-blogger Scarlet.

On the Island - Tracey Garvis-Graves What could have been a tremendously moving story ended up being a mostly insipid affair thanks to the mediocre writing and flat dialogues. However, the author deserves brownie points for handling the theme of survival and an older-woman-much-younger-man romance with as much seriousness as a YA book could be capable of. No unnecessary drama or unrealistic scenes.
