by F J Campbell
Far From The Madding Crowd, teenager-style. With sex and drugs. With parties, holidays, school plays, pranks and rugby matches.
With lust and friendship. With love. But with whom? Weatherbury Hall is a boarding school in the countryside of south-west England that's so remote and cut off, its pupils call it 'The Island'. Beth's new in the sixth form at The Island, but has no problem fitting in - she's cool, rich, clever and beautiful.
She meets three very different boys: staff child Milo is sweet but a bit boring; head boy Edward is handsome but there's no spark.
When Beth meets Zack, he blows her away - he's gorgeous and she'll do anything for him.
But Beth has a secret which is making her life even more complicated.
She needs to make the right choice and decide what - and who - is important in her life. It has the potential to be a classic. Matt Rudd, journalist and author The Islanders is a fantastic read - a sexy, intelligent, romantic story about the lives and loves of a group of teenagers at a boarding school. It is sure to appeal to fans of E Lockhart. Sam Mills, authorA young adult novel inspired by Thomas Hardy's classic love story, Far from the Madding Crowd.
