Product Description

Promise Island is the last hope of healing for four troubled teens plagued by anger, rebellion, rejection, and trauma:
  • Miguel is a gang leader, who comes to the island handcuffed to his parole officer.

  • Tobi, the rich kid, has bullied people all his life. He's had a good teacher-his dad.

  • Ya Ming hates God. She has been traumatized by an accident that killed her beloved brother and left her paralyzed and unable to walk.

  • Keerstin is a devoted Christian teen, storyteller, and artist. Yet she feels rejected because she cannot read.

  • High adventure awaits these four youths as robot-driven vehicopters transport them across the island, submerge them in the Sea of Tranquility, and bring them to the edge of Lookout Point. They are challenged to take a closer look at who this "Jesus" really is and how He can change their lives.

      My Review

      Adventures on Promise Island follows 4 troubled teenagers as they visit Promise Island. As Miguel, Ya Ming, Tobi and Keerstin arrive on the Island, they are introduced to their guide for the week and taken to their home away from home.

      Ya Ming has given up on life, thinking all she could do was sit around in a wheel chair and gain weight watching TV. Upon arriving she treated her Promise Island Leader with respect, but was still confused and angry over the drunk driver that caused her being in a wheel chair.

      Miguel believes a life of crime is his only way of life, after all he arrives at the island handcuffed. He wasn't sure about his surfer boy Promise Island Leader, Cameron. He tried to be cool-dude Miguel until the officer threatened to take him back to jail.

      Keerstin can't read, and she doesn't want to commit the time to learn, but she is an exceptional artist and seems to immediately take to her Promise Island Leader for the week, Jamie.

      Tobi has an attitude problem, even though he has money, he's dealing with abuse from his dad, which makes him a big bully himself. Arriving on the island, he tries his sarcastic attitude on his Promise Team Leader Chad, even trying to bully him too.

      This book was different than most of the books I read, but I truly enjoyed getting to know these four teens, following them throughout the Island. And to watch the amazing transformation of their lives, seeing their attitude changing as they realized there is hope in the Lord was truly astonishing. What a wonderful YA book for teens to read, to see how a life can change by giving their lives to the Lord, letting Him work through them. It is also a fun to read book, especially the teen's excitement over riding vehicopters and seeing all of the unique neat stuff on the Island. All fiction of course, but good thoughts to plug into young guys and gals minds giving them good new stuff to think about.

      If you have teenage children that are struggling with any problem, I would encourage you to get a copy of this book and let them read it. You might just help one of our precious young people see how much God loves them. And even though this is a YA book, anyone will enjoy the journey of these four amazing teens.

      I received this book free from Wine Press to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 55
