Teen reviewer Summer, 11, read The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. She absolutely enjoyed this classic adventure story about a group of explorers who set out to investigate and survive the dangers of an uninhabited island--and end up getting pulled into an unexpected mystery.
"The Mysterious Island is based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived almost 5 years on a mysterious island. I would recommend it to others who are interested in an adventure."
Summer suggests The Mysterious Island for teens 12 and up.
