This book is good. The characters are well-developed, their struggles are realistic and the setting is lovely. It’s a great summer read.
I really enjoyed Lu’s chapters the most, and I thought her friendship with Anthony was sweet and relatable.
The story wasn’t incredibly exciting, but I don’t think it needed to be. When I was about a quarter of the way in I was waiting for something to “kick in” but then I realized it’s simply a book about people and is 100% character driven.
The Islanders is a light, easy read, either for people who gravitate toward these types of books, or for readers like me who need a palate cleanser between thrillers/mysteries.
I received an ARC of this book from William Morrow as part of a Goodreads giveaway.
