Six teenage girls wake with no memories. One of them is in a brick mansion, her blonde hair as shiny as her shoes. The others are in a cabin, their names tagged to the inside of their pants. Their heads, shaved. Slashes mark the cabin wall like someone has been counting.
Hundreds of them.
There’s wilderness all around and one dead adult. The girls discover her body rotting somewhere in the trees. As the weeks pass, they band together to survive the cold, wondering where they are and how they got there. And why.
When an old man arrives with a teenage boy, the girls learn of a faraway island called Foreverland where dreams come true and anything is possible. But Foreverland is dead. In order to escape the wilderness, they’ll have to understand where they are.
More importantly, who they are.
In this Second novel of Foreverland, a bunch of girls wake up in a camp with no memory of their past, and no adults around to help them. This follows the aftermath of the destruction of Foreverland and what happened to the girls from that novel.
Overall I found the novel to be a fun read. There was a nice mystery aspect of it upfront, and some expected character discover and conflicts. Cyn was a great (and flawed) leader, and Miranda was a great enigma. Most of the other characters were very stereotypical though, and many throw away. It was great seeing a new perspective on the story and new characters from the first book. The pacing was a bit uneven, and some mysteries dragged out longer than I would have liked. Once it got closer to the end things finally picked up and everything came together. A good followup to the first novel.
