When Rachel crosses "The Line", she leaves behind everything she has ever known and enters a strange new world: Away. Life there is hard, and survival is never guaranteed. The rules are different away, and Rachel has a lot to learn. The people of Away - the same people she's always been told are dangerous and untrustworthy - have gifts she's never thought possible.
In The Island, the compelling conclusion of The Line trilogy, Rachel and Pathik continue their adventure. Will Indigo's firetales about the mysterious island called Salishan prove to be true? Are there inhabitants, and if so, are they friends or enemies? With no way back to where they came from, what price will Rachel and her loved ones have to pay in order to survive where they've landed? Are the risks they've taken, and the people they've lost forever, worth what they find on the island?
"Wish it had a strong ending."

And it's no use asking questions, especially of Mrs. Moore, who has always lived by the Line, or of her mother. But then, Rachel comes across a recorded message - one that could only have come from Away. And the voice on the recorder is asking for help...
