Adventure - Christian - Young Adult
Emily is beyond grateful to be off The Island and back at home with her family. Although her PTSD is the worse it has ever been, she is ready to get back to a sense of normal. She just wishes her parents understood the dangers that may have followed her from The Island; instead of thinking it is all her imagination. Then, she quickly realizes you should be careful what you wish for…
Yet again, Jes Drew takes readers on an adventure in the second book of The Castaway Trilogy, Fugitives. Traveling through Europe, Drew brings Paris, Belgium, and Milan to life through the lens of a scared, yet determined, teenage protagonist. Tie in suspense, a smidgen of romance, along with unfailing faith and the pages keep on turning.
However, the amount of spelling and grammatical errors is somewhat distracting. Add in a bit of repetitiousness and a rating of 4 out of 5 stars is awarded.
All in all, Jes Drew’s Fugitives satisfies the appetite for an intense, fast-paced escapade with a wholesome and refined story.
Please note, as Emily and her family trudge through most of Europe, they run into endeavors that may cause one distress. These may include: PTSD, isolation, slavery, gun violence, break-ins, kidnapping, betrayal, abandonment, lynching, assault, missing persons, sleepwalking, night terrors, fugitives, bribes, Nazis, thievery, torture, hostages, incarceration.
