Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson
Clio's summer was set up: an awesome job at the art store, a crush-worthy boy... until her crazy dad sweeps her along on an adventure. Once they co-created a board game, traveling the world together....now they're estranged. Her life is derailed, but she can't even complain about it, because she'll be on a yacht off the coast of Italy. As usual, I love Johnson's voice, sense of humor, and witty dialogue. However, I don't get why the love interest guy tends to be so annoying (also in 13 Little Blue Envelopes).
Overall, I enjoyed Clio's journey along the Italian Riveria!
Song to Read by: go back in time and don't laugh at me: "Sailing" by NSync, the song is a cover...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6A-BF7tNTg
