The Lovereading4Kids comment

A thrilling adventure story set on a tropical island… When Hanna and Ned’s parents are kidnapped by pirates, they find themselves stuck on an island and in the greatest danger. Surrounded by jungle and sea have they any hope? Escape for the children will take every drop of their cunning, courage and stamina. Will they ever see their parents alive? They're not even certain they are alive. Frighteningly topical given the heightened awareness of piracy at the moment.

Synopsis

Shark Island by David Miller

Hanna, Ned and their parents are on the holiday of a lifetime on the paradise island of Kaitan. But the idyll is shattered when pirates come in the night, burning their house and kidnapping their mother and father. The children are stranded, and don't even know if their parents are alive or dead ...In this action-packed adventure, there is no one to help. Survival and escape are up to Hanna and Ned.

Reviews

From Sir Ranulph Fiennes KBE:

'A world of adventure without leaving the house.'

From Joe Simpson, author of Touching the Void:

'Exacty the sort of adventure thriller I would have devoured by torchlight under the bedclothes when I was a youngster. It has all the ingredients for a cracking read - tropical islands, forbidding jungle, sudden terror, the exciting menace of pirates, the emotional highs and lows of adventure and loss, and the wonderful idea of two scared kids forced to be action heroes to rescue the adults.'
