Right before Sadie died, she begged her sister, Ruby, to do the one thing she could never do herself: Find the treasure on Gray Wolf Island.

With just a mysterious treasure map as a guide, Ruby reluctantly allows some friends to join her on the hunt, each of whom is touched by magic: a boy allegedly born to a virgin, a girl who never sleeps, a boy who can foresee his own death, and a boy with deep ties to the island. Each of them is also keeping a secret—something they’ll have to reveal in order to reach the treasure.

As the secrets come to light, Ruby will have to decide: Can she make peace with her friends’ troubled pasts and continue to trust them? Can she forgive herself for doing the unspeakable? Deep in the wilderness of Gray Wolf Island, Ruby’s choices will determine if they make it out with the treasure—or merely with their lives.

From debut author Tracey Neithercott comes a darkly compelling tale of profound friendship, adventure, and finding the strength to tell the truth.


This book is very mysterious yet alluring. The first chapter will leave you with chills. The characters are dynamic and want to know the truth behind this mysterious island. This world has magical realism and I was left awed at the end. This book will draw you in and the writing will captivate you.

One, small, thing I didn't like was the pacing at certain points of the book. It felt weird at times. Some parts were very fast and yet some parts were slow. However, I didn't mind because the writing kept me hooked.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves horror-mystery. This book does have similar vibes to The Raven Boys which you will love. I can't wait to read more from this author!

Overall I would give Gray Wolf Island 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About Tracey:

My first book was written by hand and illustrated with some really fancy colored pencils. It was highly acclaimed by my mother. Now, I write YA stories of friendship, love, murder, and magic. (None of which I illustrate—you’re welcome.) I live in Massachusetts with my husband, who suggests improving my novels by adding Star Wars characters.
I’m the author of Gray Wolf Island, a YA novel about the truth, a treasure, and five teens searching for both. Coming fall 2017 from Knopf/Random House.
