On the Island is a good coming of age type story. If you like movies like Blue Lagoon and ship wrecked type themes, then this is a good one. It tells the story of a teenager and his tutor surviving a plane crash and they live on the island together trying to survive. Once the boy turns 18, things start to change and they start developing feelings for each other. I won't spoil whether or not they get off the island, but it is a good girly book.
