Week 38 Review: The Lifeboat Clique

From Goodreads:
Some people might say that Denver had a death wish. Why else would she have dared to sneak into a Malibu beach party where she'd be surrounded by enemies, namely including her ex-BFF Abigail?

Oh yeah. Croix. Denver never thought in a million years he'd ask her out, but who was she to question this miracle of fate? Well, that wasn't the only surprise fate had in store.

During the party a tsunami hit the coast of California, wiping out everything in its path. Denver and a handful of others escaped death by holding onto the roof of the house and were swept out to sea. Of course, one of her fellow castaways was none other than Abigail, who could barely stand the sight of her.

Now that she's floating in the ocean, stuck on a small boat with the most popular kids in school and waiting to be rescued, Denver wonders what might kill her first-dehydration, sunstroke, or the girl she used to think of as a sister?

A hilariously dark and twisted story that sparkles with a remarkably fresh voice, The Lifeboat Clique is Kathy Park's irreverent yet insightful novel about how to survive in the most unthinkable circumstances.

My Review:
This was such a fantastic book! So enjoyable, and a really great book about survival-if I ever end up stranded in the middle of the ocean, I have some tips that could help! It was just a really great story to read, and I enjoyed it a whole ton!

The way that it was told, going back and forth from Denver and Abigail's friendship's story from beginning to ruin, and being on the lifeboat, was really awesome! We got why it broke, and then we had them afterwards on the lifeboat, not really dealing with the elephant, but surviving.

I really enjoyed these characters! Denver, with her knack for survival, Abigail, while not born in Texas, and only lived there for 3 years, threw herself whole heartedly into all things Texas. And of course, the mean girl, and her sycophant. Not really likeable, but you still want them to survive!

It sucks, the lesson that they learn at the end, because hey, life isn't perfect, and it is L.A., why would a huge disaster like a tsunami and all the deaths it caused, have people change, be better people? Well, at least they were, so that was great!

Really enjoyed reading this book, it was so great!
