Damselfly

Written by Chandra Prasad

If you like survival stories, Damselfly won’t leave you disappointed. A modern-day Lord of the Flies leaves the reader wondering what she would do in the same situation. This book is for anyone who has thought, “What if the plane crashed and I was stranded on a desert island?”

1 thought on “Damselfly”

  1. Thanks for the thoughtful review! My hope is that teachers will use Damselfly in their classrooms as a modern linked text or parallel read with Lord of the Flies. Educational resources will be available soon on my website.
