    One thought on “Lost on Brier Island”

    1. I really loved The Fossil Hunter of Sydney Mines, and when I saw this book on sale I decided to buy it. Though it differs greatly from The Fossil Hunter of Sydney Mines' small-town Cape Breton setting, it still has just as much vibrancy, with creative characters and amazing imagery.

    2. We've all heard don't judge a book by its cover, but Lost on Brier Island is the exception to this rule.The cover art began with a photo taken by author Jo Ann Yhard on a visit to Brier Island in Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy. It shows fog swirling above a grassy, sea-weedy bog, a weathered fishing shack perched on the rugged shore beside slippery black rocks. It's a scene Maritimers know well, a backdrop shared by many living in rural coastal areas and looking at it, you can almost smell the sea w [...]

    3. Very enjoyable story. Lost on Brier Island is full of emotions, beautiful settings, vibrant characters (which you will easily connect with it, as they're just unbelievably likable and real), and interesting plot developments. It's a very refreshing and charming read, perfect for sunny Spring days :)

    4. One of my favourite books I have read to this date. It was so good. I met Jo Ann Yhard a few years back since I am from halifax. She is so nice. This book made me go to the island. I fall in love.

    5. First of all, this is a book for Young Adults, so that's part of the reason it didn't get 4 stars. I know, I know: it's not fair just because I'm not a YA, but that's the way it is, folks. My motivation for reading this book, was an upcoming trip to Brier Island. I wanted to know more about the place I was going to visit, and this book definitely painted a picture of this unique island at the end of Digby Neck in Nova Scotia. The author had created a memorable and realistic characters, and throw [...]

    6. Have you ever read a book that stays with you long after you close the last page?? Well LOST ON BRIER ISLAND is one of those books for me. The main character Alex isn't happy about what her summer will be like, leaving the big city to be on an island where life is different in so many ways. But she befriends a whale she names Daredevil, and summer becomes more interesting, intriguing and adventurous. This funny and engaging story about self discovery will capture the hearts of readers of all age [...]

    7. This is a short (175 pgs) touching story about Alex, a girl who is trying to deal with the loss of her twin brother and being sent to stay with her aunt, because a she feels (incorrectly) that her parent want to get rid of her. She thinks it is he fault that her brother is dead. While taking a tour on a Whale Watch boat Alex has an encounter with a baby whale (which she names Daredevil), she becomes attached to the pup. It is a story that will have some of you crying at one point or another as A [...]

    8. I sometimes find it hard to rate YA books using the Good Reads rating system. Because I am an adult. Some books can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Other books, not so much. I feel that "Lost on Brier Island" probably isn't a book that most adults would enjoy. Which I must point out isn't a bad thing! This book gets 2 stars from this adult reader, but that doesn't mean I think it sucks. I think a lot of younger people would probably quite like it! It is well written, the subject matter [...]

    9. This was a First Reads giveaway. Lost on Brier Island is the story of a girl grieving the death of her twin brother. Her parents send her to live with her aunt on Brier Island, where she forms a friendship with a whale calf she names Daredevil. This is a lovely, quiet, book and although I think the audience of the novel was perhaps meant to be slightly younger than me, I never felt like it was talking down. Without an overload of lengthy description or complicated dialogue the author manages to [...]

    10. I enjoyed reading this book! I got it from Giveaways. The main character, Alex, is very compelling. She is surrounded by a fog of her own creation. Guilt eats away at her as she tries to cope with the loss of her brother. She's sent away to Brier Island with her aunt where it seems likes no one minds their own buisness. The first thing able to penetrate her emotional wall, comes in the form of a baby whale. Wrong assumptions and near-death expirences attest to how fragile families are. This boo [...]

    11. This story shows that a book for children doesn't need to be childish. JoAnn Yhard tackles some serious topics that kids often have to cope with without ever being ready. From loss and forgiveness, to marriage and divorce, Yhard takes the reader through one girl's journey to understanding.JoAnn Yhard has created a cast of characters that share both inner strength and turmoil. It is a beautifully written tale that weaves these characters together from their separate threads.

    12. Yhard proves that a book about a young girl can be a good read for adults as well in her latest novel. Even if you have not experienced such a significant loss the author makes Alex very relatable. All of the characters are intriguing and their flaws make them likable. This was a fast and easy read but one that really pulls you in. If you read it, you will find yourself lost on Brier Island!

    13. Well-written novel about a girl, who is getting over a tragic experience, and learns that maybe she isn't as much of a wuss as she's always thought. Can't wait to share my review with you here.
