Her 2013 novel The Middle of Nowhere was also shortlisted for the prize, and McCaugrean won the award a second time with Where the World Ends (2017). McCaughrean does not write ‘typical’ contemporary books - her novels often have historical settings or take place in different cultures (The White Darkness, 2005, is set mainly in Antarctica).

A charming book that addresses out concepts of community and culture. I love teaching this book with my ELL students for the rich figurative language and great discussion topics of what defines us and what is beauty.

I loved the book. I thought the lesson or big idea in the book was great. I used this book in my 4th & 5th grade literature groups. Although, they could read the book they had a difficult time grasping the big idea. They didn't seem to enjoy it as much as I did. So maybe it would be more appropriate for higher level students.

This book is about a man (NOT a boy, as one reviewer states) who survives a plane crash in a remote village. He finds a tribe of people who speak English, yet do not know what cameras or photographs are. In each chapter he decides what photograph to take (he has 10 left on his poloroid). The characters are flat, there is no conflict to move the story forward, and the ending is just too easy. Not until the final photo is taken does the man remember he has a family back in London. Then, conveniently enough, a helicopter appears, litteraly a Deus ex Machina, to save him. Then the author tries to make things fun by suggesting the whole tale has taken place in his imagination.
