                             I was pleasantly surprised by this story.
It was one of the ARC-s i acquired from Netgally and i kind of started reading it more because i am due over to do some reviews then because i was in a reading mode.But the story managed to suck me in right from the beginning (i so love books that don't drag) and kept me interested to the very end.

There isn't much i can say about the summary without doing some major spoilers, so I'll just keep it short.
This is a story about few teenage boys who are awakened on some tropic island with a memory loss.
The main character vaguely remembers his ant calling him Danny Boy so this is how everyone else start calling him. There are weird things happening on the Island and as the story develops more and more is reviled and the suspense and the curiosity will keep you reading deep into the night.
The Characters are very good developed all though i would maybe give Danny few years more then 13 considering his maturity and to the way he responses to all the events that are happening to him.
I am a mother of a 13 year old boy so i couldn't avoid compering. Some things that Danny said were hard to imagine coming from a 13 year old, but on the other hand - he is some kind of genius so maybe he shouldn't be compered to ordinary kids that age :).

I so can see a movie made of this book,it has all the necessity's for a great sf thriller:) 

Looking forward to read the next part.

Goodreads summery :

When kids awake on an island, they’re told there was an accident. Before they can go home, they will visit Foreverland, an alternate reality that will heal their minds.

Reed dreams of a girl that tells him to resist Foreverland. He doesn’t remember her name, but knows he once loved her. He’ll have to endure great suffering and trust his dream. And trust he’s not insane.

Danny Boy, the new arrival, meets Reed’s dream girl inside Foreverland. She’s stuck in the fantasy land that no kid can resist. Where every heart’s desire is satisfied. Why should anyone care how Foreverland works?
