Gary Paulsen - Island, The

The Island

Author: Gary Paulsen

  • AGES 11 - 13 
  • Genre Realistic Fiction

Wil and his family have moved again, and this time it is tougher since his parents are fighting. Luckily, Wil discovers the island. So, every day, 15-year-old Wil Neuton gets up, brushes his teeth, leaves the house, and rows away from shore. He goes to the island, a place where he can go to be alone and learn to know nature — and himself. Wil's only mission is to let go of the outside world. But the outside world refuses to let go of him. His family regard him as a puzzle. The town bully is determined to challenge him. And suddenly, even reporters know his name. He can confront them all, or he can embrace his solitude forever. Just one thing is certain now: Wil Neuton will no longer be relying on anybody but himself.
