"Is watching the thrilling new show 'Intelligence' not enough for you?  Well guess what--there's more!  The basis for the series is this engaging young adult novel from John Dixon.  A throwback to dark, edgy coming-of-age tales such as The Lord of the Flies every bit as much as it brings to mind The Hunger Games, Phoenix Island is a welcome romp of tension and will be sure to satisfy fans of the series and readers alike.  John Dixon is about to break out in a big way, so if you want to say you were there from the beginning, Phoenix Island is the perfect place to start.  Good luck putting it down!"
