I got On the Line after reading a PopCosmo review that called it a must-read for the beach. I brought it with me on spring break and was not disappointed! after the first thirty pages, I was so into finding out what happened that I couldn't stop reading. I even hid in the bathroom at one point to sneak in a few extra minutes of reading! If you like adventure, and real characters that actually act and sound like teenagers, give this book a try. It's so much more than a regular beach read. It's deep, exciting and REAL. I am definitely adding it to my list of favorite books!

This is a well written, engaging story of young adult life lessons learned. Always looked forward to picking it up to find out more about the characters' approach to perceived teen angst. All issues were approached from a mature focus and quite realistic for today's teen's problems and relationships. A fun read.

Great Read! On the Line caught my attention from the beginning and I didn't put the book down until I was finished. Great setting in the Florida Keys and great descriptions of sea life, fishing and daily life style of the locals. The story line is relevant to the times with young people chipping in to help their families who are struggling to keep their heads above water in these tough economic times, and sea turtles trying to make a recovery after near extinction do to changing environmental conditions. This book is really a joy to read and has some good life lessons for young people. Great book for all ages!I can't wait for more!

This fantastic book is not just for teens! I bought one as a gift for a teenager I know and I started reading it myself. Loved it, couldn't put it down and I am way past being a teenager. The plot line, dialog and character development is perfect for any age. I suggest everyone read and enjoy!!

I've been a voracious reader my entire life - it started with the Babysitter's Club at age 7 and I have had my nose buried in a book since. I recently had the pleasure of reading On The Line. What a gem! Of all the YA books I have read recently, this one would be my first suggestion for any parent inquiring about a topically appropriate and interesting book.

Upon opening the book the reader meets a young woman, Piper Wesley. Piper has such an incredible amount of ambition and passion for what she loves that it ultimately drives her to chase her dreams. She encounters a lot of temptation, betrayal, and obstacles along the way but she never lets her goals get in the way of the prize. The characters are narrated in such a way that the reader comes to understand they are innately good, despite the tendency to get caught up with social pressures as a teen. It teaches that people should be open-minded and patient with those they love. It shows responsibility, as Piper navigates her obligations to her family while training for the competition (which she enters so she may help her family financially). These are lessons that not every book focuses on teaching, but they are certainly impressed upon the reader in On The Line; these are lessons most teens could use some reinforcement in learning during the most impressionable years of their lives.

I spent a day reading this book cover to cover - I couldn't put it down. I can assure you that the same thing will happen when it arrives at your doorstep. Enjoy!

Dreary Seattle is no match for Jackie Nastri Bardenwerper's new book On The Line! The descriptions of the island, the parties, and the fishing charters were so real I felt like I was actually transported to the Florida Keys and left all my worries behind! I sided with Piper immediately, fell in love with Logan the second he moved to town, and willed Wesley's Charter business to stay afloat when I realized how awesome Piper's parents were. The book was so fast paced and so exciting, it had me racing through to the end to find out who won the competition!

I read this book on the suggestion of the rest of these reviews, and it certainly did live up to it's reviews! On the Line is my first 'must-read' of the summer, and I can't wait for more stories from this new author!

This is a great beach read for anyone, especially for young girls. The themes of friendship and loyalty, are only two of many which run throughout the book. You feel you are a part of the main character's world and many will be able to identify with her on some level.

This book took me to the beach! Reminded me of my days as a young girl at the home of my granparents. The detail was so expressive and the characters were fresh and exciting. I like to read the ya books before I let my daughter read them. I couldn't wait to hand this one over to her. The novel was refreshing and clean! Hope to hear more from this author.
