I liked this book. It made the way high school can feel like life or death into a reality.

I kept waiting for something more...that twist to take it from "meh" to "oh my gosh!" But, nope.

A snarky narrator and black humor enliven this story of 5 teens trying to survive as castaways after a tsunami hits Malibu. Flashbacks explain why two former BFFs now can't stand each other, which adds depth to the survival narrative. A quick read with a bit of bite.

Donna_sBookMinute Sounds like fun. 3y
BookishMarginalia @Donna_sBookMinute It was! I'm a sucker for a snarky narrator and this one has tons of attitude -- thanks to @gibblr for lending it to me! 3y
gibblr Yay! I had a feeling you'd appreciate the snark! 3y
BekahB I've been on the fence as to whether I want to pick this up but I've read so really good reviews so I think I'll give it a try. Plus anything that has snarky dialogue automatically gets points from me. 3y

So far this book is pretty funny. The main character has a great inner monologue.

I really wanted to love this book based on the description. It just fell short for me. I can't really put my finger on why though. I liked it but I didn't feel that it reached its full potential.

3🌟 I got an ARC on Twitter. Denver is unpopular. She gets stuck on a boat after a tsunami with her ex-BFF and some other popular kids, who hate her. You need some willing suspension of disbelief that Denver really has all those survival skills. The book just fell flat in the later chapters.

What happens when cool kids and geeks, friends and foes are adrift at sea in a small boat. First line: "Trevor Dunham talked quite a bit about his man part just before he drowned."

The Lifeboat Clique is so unique, and so much fun! The heroine, Denver, is the snarkiest ever and I loved her. Definitely recommend!

This is one of the funniest books we've read in a long time! Read it if you liked Beauty Queens by Libba Bray!
