Everlasting by Angie Frazier - ADVISABLE

Frazier, Angie Everlasting, 336 p. Scholastic, 2010. $18 


From the time she could walk, Camille Rowen has joined her father aboard his sailing ship. Now, however, she is about to get married and will have just one final trip. Unfortunately, on this trip, Camille’s father will die and a family secret will be revealed. Along her way, Camille will face many dangers and enemies of incalculable ruthlessness. She will discover that she is the heir to more than one great secret. She will also discover that love cannot be bought and sold, instead, the heart knows where it belongs.

Frazier manages to weave many dangers together without ever seeming contrived or calculated. The non-stop rush from beginning to end is an unrelenting sprint that includes a healthy dose of romance as leavening. If you can talk your girls into reading a sea-based adventure, you will definitely find some fans.
