Harper Teen Impulse Spotlight: Review Cruisin’ by Sarah Mlynowski










Harper Teen

Short and sweet with a nice twist! I became a fan of Sarah’s after reading her book Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have). So when I saw this short story I bought it right away. This story has a pretty contemporary setting: Two young, affluent teens Liz and Kristin are on a magnificent cruise ship.

Picture lots of tanning, drinks by the pool and flirting with hot guys. Yet the cruise has a specific purpose for Kristin, she is here to lose her Virginity. Liz, Kristin’s BFF is a very pushy wing woman, who isn't afraid to scoop up any guys Kristin isn't quick enough to claim.   Then Kristin sees him: The One. As Kristin moves in to stake her claim the reader learns there is  more than one way to have a first time.

Loved this! like Scott’s story from yesterday Cruisin’ is a great introduction to Sarah’s talent and hopeful a gateway to reading further works by her.
