They’re going to need a bigger boat.
Some people might say that Denver has a death wish. Why else would she dare to sneak into a Malibu beach party where she’d be surrounded by enemies, including her ex-BFF, Abigail?
Oh yeah. Croix. Denver never thought in a million years he’d ask her out, but who is she to question this miracle of fate?
Well, that isn’t the only surprise fate has in store.

Now that she’s floating on 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.
