Poisonwood Key by Chris Bostic
A shocking discovery on a remote island in the Florida Keys sends summer campers fleeing from hostage-takers and gunfire.
Every summer, Mike’s not-so-loving family ships him off for camp in the Florida Keys where he’s subjected to humorless skits, endless labor, blazing sunlight, and humidity past the edge of moistness. If it weren’t for his discovery of half-naked Heather and the other girls on the adjacent campsite, the week would feel even more like prison.
Mike embarks on a desperate mission to forge a love connection in a matter of days, stumbling his way through his shyness to impress Heather the Hottie. But winning her over isn’t Mike’s only struggle, as strange sightings lead to a darker, illicit discovery. Treasure Island becomes Displeasure Island when the teens unearth a smuggler’s fortune, and misfortune, beyond their wildest dreams.
Mike has the resourcefulness to survive the wilderness. But is it enough to lead the battle through a gang of violent thugs?
