Being a fan of teen fiction, and any book that features a character going on vacation, I had to purchase Rachel Hawthorne's CARIBBEAN CRUISING. I was not disappointed. The book takes place over the course of 10 days, both on The Enchantment, and in each of the ports, including the Virgin Islands, Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Cancun. The descriptions of each place are vivid and beautiful, while the characters are exciting, and fun. Lindsay could so fully be your best friend in life, while Brooke could definitely be the girl who your completely jealous of. Ryan, on the other hand, is like a knight in shining armor, who's looks, and charm will win the heart of all readers. A must have book for anyone looking for a cute teen romance.
Some of the items on the list include getting drunk, snokeling, kissing a lot of cute guys, and ending with the big one: sleeping with a guy for the 1st time.
Along the cruise, Lindsay goes on a quest for the right guy to complete the final task with, enlisting help from friend Brooke. This book was a page-turner, funny, and described teen life in a good way. This was a fun story for the summer which girls should take time to read!
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.
It's got humor, and potential, and will leave butterflies in your stomach as you anticipate on what will happen next.
This book, just like most other romance books, starts out with a young, typical teenager that seems to be having trouble finding the right guy.Lindsay Darnell, having been invited along on her mother's honeymoon, a 10 day and night cruise, is determined to live life at its fullest while on vacation.Upon meeting Ryan,her stepfather's best man- and not to mention, one of the hottest guys Lindsay's ever seen- ,there is an instant connection between them.Ryan was invited on the cruise to watch over Lindsay.But Lindsay insists that she doesn't need a babysitter and that Ryan would ruin her chances of accomplishing everything on her list that she intends to do this summer.A list that includes sleeping with a guy for the first time.When Lindsay meets Brooke,her wild and spontanious new friend aboard the ship,Brooke trys to convince Lindsay that Ryan just might be intending to become more than friends with her.But Lindsay's continuous reply of "he's just a family friend"is changed when a sudden kiss between them questions her thoughts about him. Will Lindsay give in to Ryan's charms and good looks?Who will fall for who first?
This book will keep u guessing all the way through it and will keep you compelled to reading it all day and all night.It is a great book to add to any collection and it is one that will give you butterflies in your stomach all the way until the end.
