I highly recommend this book for teen and tween readers who enjoy a quick-paced, fun mystery with a great natural setting.
The reading and language skills that are so important for kids to learn, are easily and painlessly covered using this book. Character and plot development, predicting, drawing conclusions, even figurative language are just a few of the skills covered in this fun read for kids. Science, Math, and Geography skills are abundant in Island Sting. Especially close to my heart is the deep environmental theme that develops into a thrilling mystery for the kids to solve.
