Quite a heavy read for a kids book but a fitting tale to delve into in a pandemic.

Based on a true story, the author does a splendid job of imagining what the young boys would have gone through physically and mentally stranded on their rugged island for the best part of a year not knowing when and if they will be rescued.

I wasn't overly familiar with his music (part of the Everything but the Girl duo) but this book I saw in the University library felt timely as I am doing a nursing course.

A fascinating, beautifully written, page turner from the patient's perspective.
