In The Treasure of Peril Island by C. W. James, Jack Drayton takes a boat ride full of adventures and mysteries that unravel as the reader dives into a story full of fun. Jack runs into a pirate who tells him about treasure hidden on Peril Island. From decoding hidden messages to fighting pirates, the path Jack follows to Peril Island is anything but smooth. A ship burns and Jack saves his friends and himself while continuously keeping his mind thinking one step ahead. But what will happen when even Jack doesn’t know what to do?
The Treasure of Peril Island by C. W. James is a good book stuffed with adventure and mystery. Yet, because of the way the author wrote the book, I felt like the scenes were changing too fast. I had a hard time keeping up with all of the characters and was losing my interest in the book. Something I did like about The Treasure of Peril Island was how the story was full of suspense and mystery. During the parts that were suspenseful, I didn’t want to put the book down, but afterwards I felt like it was a bit boring. I would recommend this book to kids ages 12+ because of the content and plot.
