What Readers are Saying

Much of the charm of this book is author Doerr’s extensive research on the Keys and the deer, which she weaves seamlessly into an action-packed, engaging story. Any residents, visitors, or fans of the Florida Keys will be delighted by the setting, which is almost a character in itself. Doerr masters the “Green Teen” genre by mixing romance, suspense, and humor with current ecological issues. Her upcoming book, Stakeout, is sure to follow in this tradition.

I highly recommend this book for teen and tween readers who enjoy a quick-paced, fun mystery with a great natural setting.

As a teacher of 35 years, and an avid reader and lover of literature,
I highly recommend this environmental thriller for teens. I actually used the book with fourth and fifth grade classes, and my kids loved it.

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.
