Lord of the Flies by William Golding is a thrilling story about a group of young boys found stranded on a deserted island. Together they found themselves developing rules and a system of organization to try and remain civil. But without “grownups,” their attempt to govern themselves becomes violent and unorthodox. Although this novel is a challenging read, it is a story all children have dreamed about before. Its bone-chilling reality, however, makes readers second guess their fantasy of living on an island.
