Review by factory
When Carol Sanders was child, her father died in a plane accident. And Jake Rosso who is her favorite singer died in car accident.After that she lived bad life and her mother worried about her. Carol associated with undesirable people and used drugs.One day Carol and her mother went to Scotland to begin new life. Her mother desided to work as a secretary to Mr.Ross. But he has a secret...I was surprised to find true of this story. I was sad to find Mr. Ross's secret. I think the reason that Mr.Ross confided his secret to Carol is she had a secret, too.I think this experience was very strange for Carol.

Review by kebosi
One day, a parenta and a child went to the island. And they lived there. Although there were a lot of people in that island, they had something secret. Then the past and now are connected. I think this book is very interesting. This is my best book in Autumn.

This story is about the famous musician who is hidden from others.The main character worked at Jacke Losso’s farm. Jacke Losso caused the car accident and he regreted the accident. So he decided to hide from others.From this book,I wonder which is better, he give himself up to police or he hide from others instesd of everyone thinking hewas dead.I wonder how shock the main character because her the likest musician is murder.But thinking of Jacke Losso's feeling, I can't blame him.
Review by chaaan810
This story is thriller & adventure. It's story of Carol, who likes pop music. Oneday, her father was dead in the airplane accident, and she and her mother went to London from Hong Kong.When I saw the word of "Dead man's island" at first, I thought this story is too interesting. But, what that word means is very simple, and I could expect this ending. I hope this story to make more tricky.
