Joshua is small for his age. Bullied relentlessly for years, all his friends have drifted away from him.
Eve is a pretty girl who has just entered the popular clique. The two could not be more different.
As they begin their final year of middle school, the unlikely pair find themselves partners in Science class. At first reluctant to work with him, Eve soon discovers hidden truths about not only Joshua but their school, and her world turns upside-down.
The two form a relationship that will teach them both the true meaning of friendship, loyalty, and love… a relationship that will end up changing not only their lives, but the complexion of their entire school.

Praise from readers:
★★★★★ – “I highly recommend this book for middle schools and high schools alike. It was well-written with excellent dialogue. The point of views between the characters shift effortlessly, and I found myself eager to read Eve’s point of view just as much as Joshua’s, even though the story centered more on him. This was an excellent book.”
★★★★★ – “Joshua’s Island really spoke to me and I recommend it to everyone. Bullying is an ongoing problem and the only way it can be addressed is head on, which I think this book expresses. Bullying is never something that should be ignored by the victim, or by others who know it’s going on. This book should be a must read in every classroom.”
