Description
"I absolutely loved this book. I never wanted this journey to end " says Morgan Matson, author of "Since You've Been Gone," of this fun and irresistible contemporary YA about high school romance & mischief on the high seas.
With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take "Destiny" by storm the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found "Destiny, " a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnightchocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.
Liza can t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She's therefore"not"interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she s"especially"not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza's ex best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that's the band's greatest competition.
But it's not going to be smooth sailing. After the "Destiny" breaks down, all of Liza's best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she's about to find herself lost at sea.

All aboard for hijinks, crushes, and a sweet story of banding together. Emery Lord, author of "Open Road Summer
"
"I adored this fun and heartfelt book. It's a pleasure cruise from start to finish, with plenty of waves along the way "--Leila Howland, author of Nantucket Blue
