Your next beach read is here, party people.
I was originally going to wait until I ordered this for my library and read it (steal it, let’s be honest) before I gave it to the kids. After seeing a few reviews though, I went ahead and pre-ordered it. What drew me in? Most reviews have compared this to Revenge (I mean, if it was a YA book). And let me tell you, I love Revenge.
So here’s the gist: Frances is on a cruise ship with her parents when it is attacked. She and another girl, Libby, manage to escape. When they are rescued from their lifeboat, only Frances is alive. She finds out that the attack is being played off as a capsizing, and that somehow an important political figure also “miraculously” survived. She puts into motion a plan fueled by rage – she will find out what really happened and make the responsible parties pay.
This book has mystery, intrigue, romance, action, and lots of twists. I suspect that your only beef will be, as was the case with me, that it ends.
