It was awesome

The book was very en enjoyable and had a lot of cliffhangers. I did not dislike anything about this book. This book is good for ages 7 or older it has a few scary parts, but for the most part it's family friendly. You should definitely listen to the sands of shark island: school ship tobermory.

Second is better

This is a better story than the first one in this series. I didn't like the first one so much, though I'm a fan of young adult fiction and love AMS's work in general. This story is more engaging, the characters are more interesting, and I'm ready now for this series to continue.
