I found this in the young adult section, and thought it sounded like a cute read for my upcoming week of floating around in the Caribbean.
However... I was annoyed by this storyline. This girl is on an amazing trip, and do you want to know what she's most concerned with? Losing her virginity. Yes. That's her main focus. Does anyone else agree that this is poor subject matter to center a book around? There was no plot other than Lindsay's frustration with being a virgin. Still. Because at 18, surely she should have slept with numerous guys, right? That's what high schoolers do, right? Every guy she meets makes her think, "Oh! I could sleep with him... Better be nice!" And I can't tell you how many "hot body" descriptions I read. I was nauseated. I find it rather frustrating that such a book was written, and then placed in the young adult section. This is where 12-year-olds are instructed to buy books from. Is this seriously a lesson they should be taught? And not only was she looking for sex, she was looking for it with no strings attached. A fling. Seriously? Shallow! And of course she couldn't see a love interest if he smacked her over the head. So she was shallow and dumb. Lovely. I see no reason why she should be someone a teenage girl should look up to.
When I wasn't downright annoyed at this book, I was bored. I've been on cruises. MANY. There is SO much more to write about than this. I can list countless numbers of interesting cruise ship plots. This one just made me want to throw it overboard. Since I don't litter I didn't, plus I would have hated for a cute sea creature to suffer as a result of my frustration. I really can't say I'd recommend this to anyone.
I took one star away for the ending. I feel like the author ended the book too abruptly when there were more plot lines to wrap up. I read the last sentence of the book and didn't even realize it. I turned the page on my kindle and only then realized the story had ended!
The grammar and wording is also odd at places; this author doesn't seem to like commas. It's like this book is written by a completely different person. Which brings me to another point - Who is Jan Nowasky anyway, it says by Rachel Hawthorne on the cover, but copyright belongs to a different person. Other books I've read, copyright belongs to Hawthorne.
I recommend Hawthorne's other books, like "Island Girls and Boys" "Thrill Ride" or "Love on the Lifts" but don't waste your time with this one.
