The Lifeboat Clique
Denver hated L.A. until she became best friends with Abigail. Life was very good, until they had a falling out, which somehow put Denver at the very bottom of the social strata. She was totally fine being friendless and focusing on school, until Croix, one of the popular kids and the object of her secret crush, asked if she planned to attend a party that hateful Abigail was throwing. Her decision to attend puts her not only at the mercy of all the mean, popular kids, but also in an ocean-front Malibu house when a terrible tsunami hits. She is caught in the torment of the wave, washed out to sea, floating along with none other than Abigail and three of her snotty friends. How can she survive not only the lack of food and water, but also the cruel words and insults of the popular crowd? Denver is a character to embrace, as she deals with the backlash of the tsunami and her tormentor’s words while trying to survive. Her quick and brilliant wit often goes right over the small minds of the other members of The Lifeboat Clique in hilarious ways. The book was excellently disastrous, in so many ways.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
