Waiting on Wednesday (36): THE TROUBLE WITH DESTINY

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!

Author: Lauren Morrill
Release date: December 8, 2015

Summary: It's not about the destination, it's about the journey...

With her trust 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 to be Liza's ex-best friend and leaders of the Athenas, a show choir that's the band's great 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. 

Thoughts: I haven't read either of Lauren Morrill's previous novels yet (but Meant to Be is on my September TBR!) But that won't stop me from picking up her next one! Even though I hated marching band when I was in it in high school, it still brings up some fond memories looking back at it now. And a book about a over-achiever drum major on a cruise ship just sounds like SO much fun! Plus, that cover? I love the combination of the illustrations with the real couple at the top. So cute!

Tell me: what are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? Does my choice sound interesting to you? Let me know in the comments below!
