Our Return to the Isle of the Lost book club starts *now!*


Now that the school year is winding down, we've got our sights firmly set on summer. Without classes, homework or after-school activities, we've got all the time in the world to finally settle in with a good book—and then talk about it with all of our friends right here for our first book club sesh of the summer.

This month, we're thrilled to cozy up with Return to the Isle of the Lost, the Isle of the Lost sequel by author Melissa De La Cruz (out now). We loved last summer's story (need a refresher? click here), and we still have "Rotten to the Core" from Disney Channel's Descendants stuck in our heads.

Last time we saw our favorite descendants, Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos (the children of Disney movie villains Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella De Vil and the Evil Queen) had gone in search of both the Dragon's Eye and Fairy Godmother's wand—and realized that maybe being good isn't so bad. Now, these troublesome teens are back...and they're headed on a whole new adventure: high school at Auradon Prep.

With her mom in prison and Ben (son of Belle and the Beast) officially her boyfriend, Mal is ready to ditch her dark past. But little do she and her friends know that their new lives on the mainland will be *way* more eventful than intended. And when they start receiving anonymous threats demanding they return to the Isle (or else!), things get complicated. A tale of cyberbullies, surprises, mystery and mayhem, this is one read you don't want to miss.
