Sometimes you have to get lost . . .

The Girl: Clio Ford, seventeen, wants to spend the summer smooching her art-store crush, not stuck on a boat in the Mediterranean. At least she'll get a killer tan.

The Mission: Survive her father's crazy antics. Oh, and also find some missing underwater treasure that could unlock the secrets of civilization.

The Crew: Dad's wacky best friend Martin, his bizarre research partner Julia, her voluptuous daughter Elsa . . . and then there's Aidan, Julia's incredibly attractive, incredibly arrogant assistant.

What's going on behind Aidan's intellectual, intensely green eyes, anyway?

As Clio sails into uncharted territory she unveils secrets that have the power to change history. But her most surprising discovery is that there's something deeper and more cryptic than the sea—her own heart.

. . . to find what you're looking for

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sea me It sounds like the perfect way to spend the summer; in Italy, with her Dad. But Clio knows better, so when she arrives, finds out that Dad's new girlfriend, her beautiful, nice daughter, and a mysterious computer nerd are also spending the summer with her; on a boat; where Clio is the cook. Maybe not as great as you would think. I loved that Clio acted like she was 16; whiny, whimsical, has tantrums, and does stupid things because she knows best, and everyone else is stupid. The book itself was very enjoyable, good cast of characters, and a great depiction of what life on a small boat with 6 people would be like.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that original, but still pretty good A bit of a slow start (picks up at around page 100) A bit predictable, but after that its great. Theres a LOT of humour in it. Nice twist-y ending. I really didn't want it to end.
