Hello! I am new to this website, and I am so excited to be here. Anyways, I'm writing a book about 4 kids with the powers of the elements (fire, water, etc.) called Lost Magic. However, I'm having some trouble with a few of the details. In the first chapter, the 4 main characters are in a plane crash, and end up on an island. I want the characters to be alone on the plane (except for maybe one advisor), but I'm not really sure how I'd get them to be on a plane together, alone. Also, they can't have met already, because the 4 mains meeting for the first time is a big part of the story. So, do you guys have any ideas for what I could do?

Thanks, and have a great day!

What if they were new inhabitants of a remote island and had to get a plane to school every day? This happens in the Orkneys (and elsewhere presumably) when the island isn't big enough to have a school on it so the kids on the small islands have to get a plane to the mainland in order to get to school. If they were all new to the island then they wouldn't necessarily know each other.
Hope that helps
