La isla más peligrosa, by John Sifert
How do you survive when death is never more than 3 feet away? Swimming to a deserted island after his plane exploded, Caden thought he had escaped the worst. Little did he know, he and the other survivors had washed up on la Isla de la Quemada Grande- commonly known as Snake Island. Here, there is an average of one venomous snake every square meter. In the midst of avoiding deadly serpents, crash survivors with dark secrets, and finding food and water, Caden just wants to find his dad and brother and go home. But to make matters worse, Caden soon discovers that the person who brought down the plane may still be on the island with them! La isla más peligrosa is a suspense-filled novel focused on delivering comprehensible Spanish while not leaving out a compelling plot. This novel features less than 200 unique words and many cognates- perfect for the novice reader.

With so many potential bad guys, this book has the reader engaged from page 1. A plane crash, a deserted island, snakes...need I say more??? Brothers must work together to escape death. This is a well-loved book in my FVR library and I can't wait to read the sequel!!!
The action starts on page one and doesn’t stop. John doesn’t waste time developing characters and setting, he jumps right into the action and lets readers piece together the details as they go. This makes for a more satisfying reward for the reader. Additionally, the large cast of characters, each with their own secrets and motivations, gives readers several storylines to follow. All the while, John weaves in cultural content and touches of humanity without either getting in the way of the story. I’ll be recommending this to readers who love action and adventure.
