Synopsis

In her last adventure before starting college, Alice takes to the open sea for the summer—and nothing can stop the tides of change.

Everything Alice has ever known is about to change—from where she sleeps at night to how close her closest friends will be. So Alice is meeting that seasick feeling head-on by setting sail as staff on a Chesapeake Bay cruise ship. And like any last great adventure before starting college, Alice knows she’ll need sunblock, an open mind, and…oh yeah, all her best girlfriends. It’s the perfect summer job.
     Perfect, that is, when things are going perfectly. But when they’re not, Alice has to figure out how to weather unexpected storms of all sorts. Which could be perfect after all—perfect training for her next big adventure—college.

Nautical nonsense. Misadventure. Drama and fun. And, of course, boys. Just another day in the life of Alice McKinley.

Though I don’t think this book was as good as some of the others- it still was very addicting.

When I read this book from the first page, I immediately like it. The simple, yet not so aspect of a girls' life before going off to college intrigued me.
