Eight kids growing up on an isolated island always covered in fog suddenly discover there is something very special about them when they begin to change into magical creatures. When they are told that once they change they will be moved to a place with sunshine and blue skies, they aren’t sure who to trust with their secrets.
Island of Fog is the first book in a series. It took me a bit to really get into the story, but once I did I didn’t want to stop reading because I wanted to know what creatures each kid would become and to find out the truth about why they were on the island. The book has a satisfactory ending but still left me wanting to know what happens next. I recommend it to kids around 12 or so and up.
