2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: An Island in the Stars Susan Laine


1) Highly imaginative and entertaining tale of two young lads who fall down a 'rabbit hole' and end up on an alien island, presumably in a galaxy far far away. Marcus and Sam are delightful characters, Sam crushing on Marcus but wary of his 'jock' persona, and Marcus just loving being alone with Sam for whom he harbors secret longings. The adventures these two get up to are mind-boggling - weird creatures, some cute some not so cute and some downright dangerous keep the boys on their toes throughout. Super fun.

Sam, a geeky college freshman, has bigger problems than lusting after Marcus, sexy jock, college junior, and his big brother’s best friend. Chasing after a beanie caught in the winter wind turns into a tumble down the rabbit hole for them both—science fiction style.

Sam and Marcus find themselves trapped on a tropical island in the middle of a strange ocean on an alien moon. The sole structure is a ruined temple devoted to the art of love. Flustered, confused, and unable to return home, they need to figure out a means of escape from a hostile jungle teeming with dangerous life-forms.

In this tale where opposites attract and secret crushes are revealed, two very dissimilar young men discover they actually have a lot in common after all, but it will take their differences as much as their points of connection to survive on an island in the stars.
