Joshua's Island: Revised Edition Publisher's Summary
Winner of the Readers Favorite Book Award for 2015 in the category of Young Adult/Social Issues as well as the Stargazer Literary Prize.
Joshua is the smallest boy in his class. He has been bullied relentlessly for years, and false rumors spread around his school have made him an outcast. Eve is a pretty girl who has just achieved her dream of joining the popular girls' clique. The two couldn't be more different.
As the two begin their final year of middle school, their lives intersect when they are paired together as lab partners in science class. At first reluctant to even be around him, Eve soon discovers hidden truths about not only Joshua but their school that turn her world upside down.
The relationship that forms between these unlikeliest of friends will put them both on a path of self-discovery - a dangerous path that will teach them both the true meaning of friendship, loyalty, and love...a relationship that will change not only their lives forever but the complexion of the entire school.
