When we were lost

Kevin Wignall ; foreword by James Patterson.
Summary
When a plane bound for Costa Rica crashes in deep jungle, the tail section breaks free and nineteen teenagers miraculously survive. Joel Aspinall, son of a local politician and student rep on the school's council, is quick to take on the mantle of leadership, to organize everyone until a rescue party arrives. But the plane was crashed on purpose, no one knows where they are and no rescuers are coming. To make things worse, Joel's decisions lead to more people dying, and he's determined to wait it out. Tom Calloway didn't want to be on this trip. Tom doesn't want to bond with his classmates - he isn't the bonding type. He'd rather they just left him alone, and he's always been unfriendly enough that they've been happy to oblige. But that was before the crash. Now he finds himself building the friendships he's always tried to avoid. And despite his determined efforts to be left alone, he begins to see that he might be the one to challenge Joel and pull off another miracle, by getting all the survivors to safety. When We Were Lost, featuring elements of Lost and Lord of the Flies, is a novel of survival, of teenagers thrust into a hostile environment. It's a novel of life and death and the razor-thin dividing line between them. And it's a novel about finding a place for yourself in a world that's infinitely complex.
