Review: Damselfly

Damselfly Damselfly by Chandra Prasad
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Samantha Mishra is stranded on an unknown island with her fencing team. The plane crash killed the pilot and two other classmates. As rescue seems less and less likely, social niceties have fallen by the wayside. People show their true character when under threat.

I was ready to read this one when I realized it was a retelling of Lord of the Flies. It doesn't quite follow every detail of the original, which I was glad about when I was trying to figure out who might be who character wise. (Worrying, actually.) The open ending certainly sets this up for a possible sequel.
