Overview

Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson

Sometimes you have to get lost . . .

The Girl: Clio Ford, seventeen, wants to spend the summer smooching her art-store crush, not stuck on a boat in the Mediterranean. At least she'll get a killer tan.

The Mission: Survive her father's crazy antics. Oh, and also find some missing underwater treasure that could unlock the secrets of civilization.

The Crew: Dad's wacky best friend Martin, his bizarre research partner Julia, her voluptuous daughter Elsa . . . and then there's Aidan, Julia's incredibly attractive, incredibly arrogant assistant.

What's going on behind Aidan's intellectual, intensely green eyes, anyway?

As Clio sails into uncharted territory she unveils secrets that have the power to change history. But her most surprising discovery is that there's something deeper and more cryptic than the sea—her own heart.

. . . to find what you're looking for

While I have loved all of Maureen Johnson's other books this one was still entertaining, but not as "Ohmigawd, have to get it" kinda books. I loved the character Clio though. She has a snarky voice and a very colorful tattoo (thanks to her off the wall father) and a true sense of adventure. The first half of the book is slow to get through, but once the pieces start to come together, it really is a good book. There is more than just adventure, there is some romance as well, first with Ollie and later with Aidan, but the romance with Aidan is the only one that has any real substance. The secondary characters are really well formed and they hold the story together, but they dont speed things along either. Its great for a summer fun read, or even a Fall read to make you wish you had this location for your summer vacation.

Taken away from her chances of winning over a handsome Southern, Clio is pulled into the world of seasickness and tiny spaces. Her father, ambitious and hopeful (and should I say cute), bought a yacht. The yacht isn't huge but it would get them from here to there, right? What about from Sorrento, Italy to the middle of the sea? Stuck on a yacht (which should be exciting) but with five other people, can be tiring. Especially if there is a statuesque archeologist's daughter who Clio envies, a cute research assistant who just might be taken, her father's best friend who suffers from heart problems, her father's new girlfriend, and, of course her father. Clio is annoyed already but the real reason is . what are they doing in the middle of the sea? The first half of this book (pages 166 and earlier) where slow at getting to the point. It was boring to read about the same scenes, setting, characters, and problems. It was really a teenage drama. But when page 167 arrived, I was sucked in. The story behind the main secret (the reason they are on a yacht in the middle of the sea) began to intertwine with Clio's personal life. That, itself, is exciting! Author Maureen Johnson is clever in so many ways. She took unoriginal characters (ex. snobbish, hot, etc.) and made their small qualities seem important through humorous dialogue and vivid descriptions of the whole ordeal. If you are patient enough, which means if you can deal with reading the first half of the book, this is a great story to have on your bookshelf.

When I started reading Girl at Sea, I had no idea it was going to go in the direction it did. Seventeen year old Clio's sudden change of summer plans, surprised me just as much as they did her. This is by far one of my favorite books. I have ready it a number of times, and would still read it again. I would definitely say that it's adventure, but a drama as well. It shows a relationship between a father and daughter grow. Also, I think any girl would love to read about the conflicts that occur between the teens in this adventure too. There is never a dull moment in this book, and I think you'll agree.
