Waiting On Wednesday: Lost Girls by Ann Kelley

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

No parents. No rules. No way home.
Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn’t be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand with her fellow Amelia Earhart Cadets-the daughters of the men and women stationed there during the Vietnam War. But when a strong current deposits the girls on what their boatman calls the “forbidden island,” things take a turn for the worse: A powerful storm comes to destroy their campsite, the smallest of the junior cadets is found dead, and their boatman never returns. What once seemed like a vacation in paradise has become a battle against the elements.
Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie’s journal, Lost Girls is a page-turning, heart-pounding adventure story about a group of teen girls fighting for their lives.

Sounds kind of like Lord of the Flies with girls. And even though I wasn’t all that crazy about LotF, this sounds much more awesome. Scheduled publication date is July 10, 2012.
