A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?
In the Bermuda Triangle–a lot.
Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life–her father’s death years ago, her mother’s medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her–seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she’s gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they’re a happy couple… a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying “Happy Anniversary”… and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship’s doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she’s warned that these “alternate realities” could become permanent.
She just has to ask herself one question–how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?
I think I was expecting something else when I started this book. I wanted more of a story about these characters in the Bermuda triangle going through alternate realities rather then the book revolving around the lesson she was learning.
Don’t get me wrong, she really did grow from the beginning to end, but I guess I was hoping more for a scary time altering reality book.
Once I got into what it was going to be about I must say it was a fun read.
The story takes place on a cruise ship going from New Jersey to Bermuda.
Autumn is a troubled girl who has the weight of the world on her shoulders. Her issues stem from the death of her father and her mother being in a coma. She blames herself for both accidents. I’m not sure how likable she is, she complains an awful lot.
She has two love interests. You meet both boys in the beginning while Autumn is at a pizza place with her friend, (which by the way made me want pizza how she described it) Joey is some what obsessed with her almost stalker like. Tries to hard to get her attention and follows her around like a puppy. Marcus is the tall, dark and handsome guy, very quiet and extremely mysterious.
Both boys are also on the cruise with Autumn. While on board she is rather annoyed that Joey is following her around when all she really wants to do is hang with Marcus.
One night when she goes to bed she wakes up in an alternate reality maybe from the Bermuda Triangle. She has 3 alternate realities on the ship each one getting a little worse then the first one. Each one teaching her life lessons and making her rethink how she has been acting and feeling towards her family and friends. She even realizes that what she is looking for is right in front of her face.
Don’t let my rating fool you this was a really great book. Fun, descriptive and holds a very strong message. For her debut book I think Kimberly Miller did a pretty good job. I liked this book. I look forward to reading more from her.
I would recommend, it really was a fun read. I do think it’s more for a YA/Teen age.
