From the critically acclaimed author of Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) and the Magic in Manhattan series comes a fun short story about taking the plunge on the high seas, where not everything is what it seems.

Kristin is ready to take the next step. . . . The only problem is she hasn't found the right guy to take it with her. That's why she agreed to go on the ominously named Cruise to Nowhere with her best friend, Liz. There are plenty of cute guys on the ship to choose from if only Kristin can work up the nerve—and stop worrying about the reports in the tabloids that passengers on cruises have been mysteriously disappearing and that someone suspects it has to do with . . . vampires.

As I was reading this short story, I kept thinking, "Oh, this is going to be so predictable."
I was SO wrong about that!

Kristin and her friend, Liz, are on a cruise that was gifted to them from their parents after graduation. Time alone on a cruise to nowhere (seriously, this ship just cruises around the ocean, no stops!), they're on the prowl for cute boys. Especially Kristin, who thinks it's time to finally "take the next step" in her life. And her and her friend think that having a one-time-stand with a stranger is the way to go.
But as soon as they're set to go scope out the pools, they run into a girl who tells them about the mysterious disappearances that have been happening on cruise's lately... the one where passengers are disappearing and these disappearances are rumored to be because of vampires.
Do vampires really exist?

Oh my, the humor! The silliness! These girls!
So much fun!

So NOT predictable at all!

The ending!!!
What a twist!!!
Did not see that coming!!!

I really wish that this story wasn't so short - I would have liked an extra chapter or two just to get to know the main characters a bit better - it truly felt rushed.

I highly recommend this as a go to read to help you get out of a reading slump, to get over an emotional read or a bumper for in-between long reads! It won't disappoint!
