Harper Winter 2016 Blog Tour & Giveaways: The Lifeboat Clique by Kathy Parks


Firstly, can I say how excited I am to be part of this tour?! It is such an awesome idea! When Hannah invited me to participate in this tour I jumped at the chance because not only is this a hugely awesome undertaking, it's so fantastic for everyone involved! A serious marathon of flails!

While I am typically a big fan of fantasy and paranormal novels, I am so looking forward to this one because I can enjoy a good contemporary every now and then! It is described by Hannah, the wonderful organizer of this tour, as Veronica Mars stuck on a boat full of 09ers. COUNT ME IN!

Publication Date: March 1, 2016

Some people might say that Denver had a death wish. Why else would she have dared to sneak into a Malibu beach party where she’d be surrounded by enemies, namely including her ex-BFF Abigail?

Oh yeah. Croix. Denver never thought in a million years he’d ask her out, but who was she to question this miracle of fate? Well, that wasn’t the only surprise fate had in store.

During the party a tsunami hit the coast of California, wiping out everything in its path. Denver and a handful of others escaped death by holding onto the roof of the house and were swept out to sea. Of course, one of her fellow castaways was none other than Abigail, who could barely stand the sight of her.

Now that she’s floating in the ocean, stuck on a small boat with the most popular kids in school and waiting to be rescued, Denver wonders what might kill her first-dehydration, sunstroke, or the girl she used to think of as a sister?

A hilariously dark and twisted story that sparkles with a remarkably fresh voice, The Lifeboat Clique is Kathy Park’s irreverent yet insightful novel about how to survive in the most unthinkable circumstances.
THIS BOOK SOUNDS SO AWESOME AND IS MAKING THE VERONICA MARS FAN IN ME SQUEE!

  5. I actually haven't heard of this one until today. Huh. It looks more summery than wintery. I feel like I should read it on a beach... :)

    1. Sometimes you need a beach-like read to break apart the darkness of winter though ;) This is perfect because it has some darkness to it!
