  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix

  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


Oh my, this was great! It had the perfect blend of everything that makes a YA Thriller amazing. A locked-room mystery...on a boat! Twists and turns around every corner and oh so many suspects. There's even some little romances on the side. Gahh what's not to love?

There was such a nice build up to all the chaos. Super well-paced. I loved getting to know the characters, watching them get used to each other, as well as, attending campus on board and their excursions off the boat were fun. But once everything started to go down it did not stop. Literally everyone is a suspect and you'll be flip-flopping like crazy! I sure was haha. Woo this was awesome!
