There are 50 books in the - can you read them all?
Today we're highlighting another classic novel, by .


"At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate; this far from civilization the boys can do anything they want. Anything. They attempt to forge their own society, failing, however, in the face of terror, sin and evil. And as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far from reality as the hope of being rescued."


When you complete a book on the Reading Canon List, take and pass an AR Quiz about it.
Read 10 books to earn a Bronze badge, 25 books for Silver, and read all 50 books by the end of your time with us to earn your Gold badge!
