From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up—Clio Ford, 17, is an artist who has just landed a job at an art store that puts her right in the line of sight of her crush. Within minutes of landing this primo job, she learns that her mother has been awarded a fellowship that involves moving to Kansas for the summer; Clio will have to live with her father, whom she considers immature and selfish, on a yacht in Italy. Within pages, Clio is off on an excursion that involves her father (who is really working hard to make things right), his new girlfriend (an archaeology professor on a hunt), his girlfriend's daughter, a grad assistant, and her father's best friend. There is a secret shrouding this adventure. Through old letters that are found and snippets of conversation, readers figure out that the group is looking for something akin to the Rosetta Stone. Johnson does a great job of peppering enough interesting information and planting enough clues to keep the story moving along. Purchase for readers who enjoy lighthearted mystery and intrigue.—Emily Garrett, Armstrong Elementary School, Sachse, TX

Who wouldn't want to spend the summer cruising the Mediterranean? Seventeen-year-old Clio, for one. It will ruin her plan to turn her crush into her boyfriend, and she'll be stuck with her dad. Things head downhill from the start of the cruise: her dad's new girlfriend is along; Clio must share a cabin with Elsa, the girlfriend's daughter; she's not allowed to use the Internet or a telephone; and no one will tell her the real purpose of the trip. Clio and Elsa quickly become friends, and eventually Clio determines that the trip has something to do with undersea archaeology. Then, Clio is knocked off guard by her attraction to an onboard research assistant. A whirlwind of mystery and action, friendship and romance, this is a perfect summer read for Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants fans.

Top customer reviews
It does not really stand out in a sea of similar novels, but it you like Maureen Johnson's kind of funny you'd be better off with this than something else by someone else. She also portrays the main character's frustration really well. It felt like running into a wall over and over again or being trapped in a room with no way out (which is sort of what this is too). Funny, but otherwise quite unremarkable.

They are fun, light reads that make you forget about all the drama in your life as you enter the drama of her characters.Read more
