Girl at Sea starts off with
Clio being forced to go with her father on vacation since her parents
are divorced. Now, she's stuck with her dad, his best friend, his
research partner, her assistant Aidan, and her daughter Elsa on a boat.
Clio hates it because she's trapped on a boat in the middle of the Mediterranean
when she could be working in an art store back home flirting with her
co-worker Ollie. A lot of things happen in the boat...and a lot of
secrets are revealed.
I found Girl at Sea
okay. It did get a little boring because the setting was mostly on the
boat but I still found the plot to be fun and definitely one-of-a-kind.
I loved all the wacky events that happened to Clio; the jelly fish
stings, thieves trying to steal the boat, and accusing Julia.
thing I noticed was that all the characters were very dynamic and
realistic. I was able to relate to everyone of them and the situation
each of them were in.
Elsa was on the rebound from her old boyfriend.
Clio was where she didn't want to be and she was around people she didn't like.
Adam wasn't really enjoying being Julia's assistant.
Julia was solely focused on her research.
Clio's dad was still guilty about the boat that hit Clio when she was a
kid. He's still trying to make her more amiable and more appreciative towards him.
As you can see, they are all very realistic. I was able to catch a glimpse of what their life was like through Clio's eyes.
though it was a little bumpy and a little choppy, I enjoyed reading it
all the way to the end. There was just the right mix of adventure,
romance, and mystery. It's a good read and it will leave you wanting
more. B+ :-)
