Publisher: Olympia Publishers
Date Published: 25th October 2018
Genre: YA Adventure
Some secrets are best kept hidden… and some are just too magical not to share.
Teenagers, who unexpectedly acquire a vast collection of magical, mystical powers and abilities, find an ancient map. This map leads them on a quest for buried treasure to a mysterious island filled with hidden secrets, booby traps and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. What could possibly go wrong? A lot!
I want to thank Sarah Hardy at Books On The Bright Side Publicity for inviting me on this tour.
JJ finds a map in an old family relic which claims to lead to treasure, just what his cash strapped family needs. But, as he find out, along with his friends that this no ordinary map. They must solve clues, avoid booby traps, all with a heartless villain on their tails.
The Misfit Tribe and The Secret of Mystery Island is a nod to classic children’s adventure fiction with a magical twist. In fact this really reminded me of Enid Blyton books I read as a kid.
Misfit certainly describes this group of friends well! Each of the characters are so different it’s funny how they are actually friends! JJ, is determined, Digger is army obsessed, Genius is well a genius. They ended up dragging JJ’s older brother Aaron and Digger’s older sister Karli, along with JJ’s crush Sandra on the adventure. It was enjoyable watching each character grow and change as the story went along.
My only slight issue was the fact that it’s classed as young adult but it felt a little bit more like a middle grade, especially as the characters are only thirteen and fifteen but of course that just my opinion.
The Misfit Tribe and The Secret of Mystery Island is a rip roaring adventure, full magic, mystery and mayhem!
