Here’s a riveting mystery novel that also incorporates character development & a wildly weird combo of realism & supernatural. A lot of the issues addressed in the story are similar to those that everyone will eventually face in their lives. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read that hits the heart.

For fans of The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender comes a compelling story of five friends in search of a legendary treasure. They'll face adventure, supernatural elements, and what it means to trust your friends with the darkest of secrets. Ruby's sister had one dying wish: that Ruby explore the infamous Gray Wolf Island and find the treasure long rumored to be buried there. Ruby sets off to find it, with only a poem, serving as a treasure map, to guide her. She teams up with some local friends--a boy supposedly born of a virgin, a girl who doesn't sleep, a boy who has visions of his own death, and another with a dark family history. Together, they must face their own demons and give their secrets to the island in order to find their treasure. Along the way, they'll learn things about themselves, and each other, that they never thought possible. But on an island that demands both truth and death, how far will they go to reach the end?
