Summary:

I don't mix with the 'in crowd'. I'm a nerd, my sister's a cheerleader and her boyfriend's a jock. But when we all decide to take a summer vacation cruise, things begin to go horribly wrong.

Being stuck on a desert island with soppy cheerleaders and supposedly tough jocks is not my idea of a good time.

But when I decide to share my secret with a boy I hardly know, I'm about to find my life taking a turn for the better...

I read this a little while back and forgot to comment! I mean, REALLY?! While i was reading this for the second time i kept thinking: You retard how could you forget to comment on something as good as this?!!!!

  I love the characters. You made them seem realistic. Mark had to be one of my favorites, description wise... ;) haha, and so was Joel. The Disney Princess names made me laugh (in a good way obviously)!

 I loved the situation you put them in, the whole straanded on a desert island theme sometimes gets played too much, but the way you did it was marvelous.

 I also loved the surprise twists like the whole Joel/Mark fiasco and Jasmine's tragitey. Excellent job!

 The only thing i would say you should've done was slow it down, but i do that in my stories also so i shouldn't exactly be one to judge... :)

 Amazing book!!!!!! Please keep writing?!!!! :D

“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

Awesome! I look forward to reading it! I've been having a bit of writers block at the moment.

Your stories are always so great! It did seem a bit rushed toward the end there, but all in all, it's still great! Keep writing!
