Trapped is the thrilling third installment of the middle-grade Shipwreck Island series by S.A. Bodeen, full of mystery and unexpected twists and turns.
Sarah Robinson and her family are shipwrecked on a remote and mysterious island. Their food is scarce and there's no sign of rescue. They have seen strange creatures, rescued a mysterious girl, and found the Curator, who has captured Sarah's father and stepbrother to use in a bizarre time travel experiment. And then the only man who knows about the island comes back—he's looking for buried treasure and won't leave without it, even if it means leaving the Robinsons stranded. Sarah knows an important key to finding the treasure, but will she keep it a secret?

Praise for Shipwreck Island:
“In this exciting series debut, 12-year-old Sarah Robinson responds with ill-grace to her father's remarriage after six years as a widower. . . . Intensely readable and will be excellent for reluctant readers.” —School Library Journal
“The first in a series, a contemporary castaway tale featuring a blended family. . . . This book will leave readers hungry for a second helping.” —Kirkus Reviews
