Jeni Mayer's Suspicion Island opens with a promising burst of R. L. Stevenson-style adventure but begins accumulating a familiar set of contemporary teenage problems by chapter three. Daniel, the 16-year-old protagonist, comes to visit his newly remarried grandfather on one of B.C.'s Gulf Islands and finds a ransacked, empty house, a hostile Native girl he suspects is on drugs, and a frightening neighhour he knows only as "Crazy Jeb." What has happened to Grandpa? Where is Grandpa's new wife? Who cut the telephone line? What are all those strange markings in the sand? How many rhetorical questions is it possible to cram into one short novel? In the process of solving all these mysteries and many more, Daniel makes serious headway into growing up and learns one very important thing: never get in a boat unless you're wearing a lifejacket. Except for those ubiquitous questions, this is a lively, fast-moving novel that should entertain young readers of both sexes.
