Girl at Sea

Author: Maureen Johnson
Number of Pages: 336
First Publication: 2007
Genre: Teen Fiction
Synopsis: "Sometimes you have to get lost . . .
The Girl: Clio Ford, seventeen, wants to spend the summer smooching her art-store crush, not stuck on a boat in the Mediterranean. At least she'll get a killer tan.
The Mission: Survive her father's crazy antics. Oh, and also find some missing underwater treasure that could unlock the secrets of civilization.
The Crew: Dad's wacky best friend Martin, his bizarre research partner Julia, her voluptuous daughter Elsa . . . and then there's Aidan, Julia's incredibly attractive, incredibly arrogant assistant.
What's going on behind Aidan's intellectual, intensely green eyes, anyway?
As Clio sails into uncharted territory she unveils secrets that have the power to change history. But her most surprising discovery is that there's something deeper and more cryptic than the sea—her own heart.
. . . to find what you're looking for"

After reading the first three Inheritance books I was desperately in need of something light and fluffy, well I found that light read in Maureen Johnson's Girl at Sea.
The only draw back to Girl at Sea is that it took half the book to get where I could not put it down. But once it did pick up, I was hooked.
I totally felt Clio's pain when she got stung by all of those jellyfish (having been stung myself). Although, it was painfully obvious who liked whom (just in case you haven't read it yet, I will not tell you who ended up with who).
I really wish that the cover had a picture of her tattoo (it sounded really cool looking).
Girl at Sea Has earned it way on to my (very long) list of books that I would like to have in my personal collection.

Girl at Sea receives 3 out of 5 cameo pendents.

  3. 21: Thank you. I was getting kind of tired of the dots, so I changed it.
