This book was written at a 4th or 5th grade reading level for a "young adult" (meaning teenagers) audience. I thought the plot and character formation were inane and improbable. Knowing that this is for a teen audience, I thought there was an awful lot (and I do mean "awful") of sexual conduct. In the usual way of today's modern novel, there was a set of parents that no one could possible respect, and therefore, a pair of teenagers who had absolutely no love or respect for their parents. This ga ...more

What do you get when four teens from opposite ends of the social spectrum find themselves wrecked on an uninhabited island? Well, if you’re Elle Casey, you get the YA Action/Adventure novel Wrecked.

From being introduced to the four protagonists, to when they’re on the cruise ship, to when they’re in a life boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, to their life on the island, and all the way to the satisfying conclusion, Wrecked will keep the reader interested.

The relationships, emotions, a

Ahem.I loved it. This book intruiged me as I hadn't come across the concept before and was not disappoitned. The adventure was great and the twists and turns kept me on my toes.

The characters are relateable and wonderfully flawed- like all good characters are and the relationships between them are believeable. Casey has a great understanding of teenagers and everything that happens I

(From my blog, Word Vagabond: Supporting Independent and Small Press Authors.)

Sarah Peterson is appalled at having to go on a cruise with the deeply uncool Buckleys, Candi and Jonathan. Her father is working on some kind of business deal with the Buckley parents, so she and her brother Kevin won’t even be able to ignore them. To top it off, she just caught her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend! She is so not in the mood for this trip.

The four of them are just starting to figure out

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said - nope absolutely nothing..........Elle had me hooked right from the start again, I really love her writing style, there is no prolonged descriptive prose but you can see exactly in you mind the whole story and surroundings. Her visualisation skills are absolutely great, she gets to the point with things without you wanting to skip a few lines whilst waiting for the author to get to the point, she just throws it in here there an everywhere which ...more

WRECKED...... was so much fun to read. What could be better then my two favorite things combined, cruising and camping. I know one is luxury and one is roughing it , but I love them both. So when I came upon this book I knew I had to read it.
Jonathan, Sarah, Kevin and Candi, end up on a cruise together with there families , because there dad's are doing a business deal. They are from polar oppisite social spectrums and end up after some really funny typical cruise moments, wreaked on an island.

This was just what I was looking for. I really wanted to sink my teeth into an island castaway story and there aren't really that many out there. I found this one on a Amazon forum and it was really good.

4 teens. Sarah and Kevin are twins and seem to have it all. They are rich and popular. Kevin is athlete and Sarah is the school princess. Their dad has an important business deal with another local man who has a family. He decided to join the families for a cruise vacation to try and close his b

This book, for lack of a better word, was amazing. From the character intros, to the last page, I was intrigued. Elle clearly understood teens, because all of their motivations and goals were believable; even the way in which they became stranded was believable. I LOVED EVERY aspect of this book. I definitely recommend it, a must-read. The only reason I didn't give it a 5, was because I save 5's for books I have a connection with, but this was a definite 4 1/2.

I don't like to read young adult fiction. Or at least I didn't before I grabbed a copy of Wrecked by Elle Casey.

My mind has officially been changed. Elle can write her butt off. Like I said, I don't generally like YA books, but the characters of Wrecked had me interested right away. I was hooked and couldn't stop reading until I knew what would happen to them. These aren't your typical dumb kids - they're intelligent and witty. Their dialogue had me smiling the entire way through the book. They

I got this book free off of and started reading it right away. I did not expect much from it, and was tired, so this seemed like a low keyed book to read. I was wonderfully surprised by how enjoyable the book was. It was a fast read because I had to find out what was going to happen! It was predictable but not at the same time. An excellent YA book and a good adult book also.
My only issue was the end...I like ends to wrap everything up, which I will admit is a personal issue. :) This

I have read all of Elle Casey's books and I usually enjoy them. This one was eh. I loved the idea, liked the characters but for one: they all suddenly love each other after this big social class build up? Two: they built an entire home and amenities within a two month period? Three: they were rescued ( which kind of sucks for a sequel, I much preferred they stay on the island.) It was just rushed. Ill read the sequel though bc I love her books but I hope she avoids the one big thing that annoys ...more
“This has great imagination and a touch of fun. Great YA read with characters you love, hate, feel for and want to know better!

Step out of the real world, abandon what you think is plausible and enjoy the adventures and strengths of two sister/brother duos from different social backgrounds as they learn to survive on a remote island after being shipwrecked!

These kids face starvation, survival, attack and come out on top! You will laugh, cry, and be amazed at their combined strengths and what the

I read this till about a quarter of the way until I couldn't take anymore. I bought this book not realising it was aimed at the teen market so it's a harsh review but thats because I'm a man in his thirties and not a teen girl. It was just too much talk of make-up and about the next handsome boy that were talking to her. First book I haven't been able to finish in a long time.

This book was immensely entertaining and the four main characters were completely realistic. As teenagers, there are always those cliques such as the jocks, brainy nerdy geeks, popular cheerleader/fashion conscious mean girls and then the shy/unpopular people. We all grew up with these types of people in high school. Heck, we were one of these people - right? You know which type you were. Well there you have it.... in this story there is Keven the jock, Jonathan the brainy dude, Sarah the popula ...more

Fabulously entertaining. I will admit, I had quite a few moments where there was disbelief in the logistics of what was going on, but then I remembered that it doesn't have to be 100% realistic to be super enjoyable. My only problem was the ending with Kevin...but the teaser of possibly more gives me hope. He has a lot of apologizing to do. :)

This book was great and had a really good sense to it. It was different from anything I had read before but then again some of the things that happened seemed to be a bit out of the blue.

A particular scene on the beach springs to mind, yes it did have some relevance but also was slightly out of nowhere with no real lead up except a fire.

It was a good book but was also quite a not exactly silly book but kind of unbelievable.

It had a good storyline though and did make for a good read as one of

If you enjoyed the book "The Island" by Tracey Garvis Graves and the movie "Lovewrecked" starring Amanda Bynes then Wrecked by Elle Casey is definitely for you . Wrecked takes place with two families The Preston's and the Buckely's on a cruise ship. The families and the children couldn't be more different from popular and rich Preston's to the down to earth and odd Buckleys. Whilst on their cruise , a rogue wave hits and the teenagers end up in one lifeboat and separated from their families. The ...more

I have read and adored so very many of Elle's books and with each one, I have continuously been swept away. Wrecked has been on my to-read shelf for quite some time and now that I've gotten around to reading it, I (as usual) don't know WHY I waited so long!

Twins, Kevin and Sarah, have never wanted for anything. They live in a beautiful home, have their own cars, and are more than popular. The last thing they want to do is spend some of their well-earned summer vacation on a cruise with their par
