GIRL AT SEA
Johnson delivers a spectacular book that's nearly impossible to put down. This novel has it all: amazing adventure, great romance and intriguing mystery.
Clio's upset to learn she's spending the summer on her dad's yacht off Italy searching for sunken treasure. Secrets are everywhere -- her dad, with whom things have always been rocky, isn't being truthful about their mission, and the crew isn't any better. Elsa's a friend, but Aidan gives her strange vibes, and she's sure Julia has ulterior motives. Will there be romance, treasure or pirate kidnappings?
