Read & reviewed by Olive (Local Tawa Student): Wave Riders is a book that I personally loved. It is about two twins, Jess and Jude, who get shipwrecked and adopted after their caretaker, Gabriel Carter, disappears. The couple that adopted them seem nice and thoughtful, but on the inside they have terrible secrets to hide. Jess and Jude slowly untangle their parents’ past whilst living at the Blakeneys’ family mansion.

I would rate it 8+ and for people who like mystery books. I would give it a 10/10 star rating because it is really gripping and has a great ending.
