Neptune's Children by: Bonnie Dobkin

Josh and his sister are visiting the Isles of Wonder when a terrorist group biologically attacks the world, killing all of the adults. Josh and his sister are stranded on the island of the Isles of Wonder with other children who were visiting or live there. They come together to help each other but when accusations are aspersed small groups form. The islanders are on the brink of a war that will determine the future of the islanders. Will Josh and his sister come out safe and sound or will they lose their lives in this war?

When I read the blurb for Neptune's Children, my first thought was: Gone by Michael Grant. The basic idea of both novels is the same, all the adults disappear, the children are left to fend for themselves, cliques form etc. I thought that I would like it considering it was like Gone. But I didn't like it. I didn't like it very much because it was very predictable. You always knew who was going to cause problems. Another reason I didn't like it was because I had already read Gone. I had a picture in my head that was similar to what happens in Gone. I believe I would have liked Neptune's Children if I hadn't read Gone before. I would give it 2 stars just because it was very predictable.
