The Trouble with Destiny

Petty Drama is the main theme of this book folks! I thought I was going to fall in love with this story set on the water. But I found out that that was just not going to be the case. If you loved the authors other book, Meant to Be with its funny humor and cuteness, I can't strive enough how much this book is the opposite of that in every way!

None of the characters were likable and being inside of Liza's head kind of made me want to scream. The rest of the book was a mash up of things the kids got away with that for the most part they shouldn't have been able to get away with. It felt very underdeveloped and well I kind of wish that the boat would hit an ice cap and sink. At least that would have given us something to look forward to.


Book Blurb for The Trouble with Destiny

With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm—the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.

Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition.

But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.
