Girl at Sea - Maureen Johnson Not my favorite MJ book. Pacing felt off--too much moping and not doing anything about it for the first 2/3 or so of the book. I kept waiting for Clio to get off her butt and DO something. She eventually did, but it was too late in coming, in my opinion. I also didn't much care for the love interest. MJ seems to imply that he was only acting like an asshole in response to Clio also acting like an asshole, but I felt his behavior was waaaay more assholish than hers. I didn't find him at all attractive. I wanted her to go home to be with Ollie the art store guy, haha.
