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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
