The Truth with Destiny

The Truth with Destiny

by Lauren Morill
Fun and irresistible contemporary YA from the author of Being Sloane Jacobs, a book author Huntley Fitzpatrick says is “Full of twists and romance,” and author Gwendolyn Heasley calls, “Funny, charming, and heartwarming.”

With her trusty 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 be Liza’s ex-best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest 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.
