Title: The Lifeboat Clique
Author: Kathy Parks
Synopsis: Some people might say that Denver had a death wish. Why else would she have dared to sneak into a Malibu beach party where she’d be surrounded by enemies, namely including her ex-BFF Abigail? Oh yeah. Croix. Denver never thought in a million years he’d ask her out, but who was she to question this miracle of fate? Well, that wasn’t the only surprise fate had in store.During the party a tsunami hit the coast of California, wiping out everything in its path. Denver and a handful of others escaped death by holding onto the roof of the house and were swept out to sea. Of course, one of her fellow castaways was none other than Abigail, who could barely stand the sight of her.
Now that she’s floating in the ocean, stuck on a small boat with the most popular kids in school and waiting to be rescued, Denver wonders what might kill her first-dehydration, sunstroke, or the girl she used to think of as a sister?
Huge thank you to Harper Collins for sending me a copy of this for review!
This book was so fun… which feels wrong saying about a book that is about a lot of freaking death. But Denver had a great voice and the whole story just worked. It’s very 90’s and very mean girls.
Denver goes to a party that she shouldn’t have, but wanted to because some dude asked her. She sneaks out of her house and heads to the illegal Malibu mansion party. A HUGE earthquake strikes and a tsunami follows, pulling the kids out to sea. Not a lot of them survive and it’s all quite horrid. But in a dark comedy sort of way. Denver ends up on a boat with the “cool kids” and uses a lot of science to try to save them. They fight, they pull together, and they have some moments.
There’s not really too much that I can say about this book other than you should read it!
