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?

My Review

There are many different stories surrounding the Bermuda Triangle and though I don't know many of them, I think that Kimberly Ann Miller's story is one of the most interesting ideas I've seen yet.

The main character is Autumn (and I must say what a completely amazing name this is, I have actually been storing it as a future baby name, you know, when I actually have a baby :P). When we first meet Autumn her life is pretty average; her father's dead, her mother's in a coma and Autumn blames both of these tragedies on herself. Her relationship with her sister is stressed at best and she won't let people in, pushing away anyone who comes close. When she and her sister go on a cruise through the Bermuda, things start to get a little weird and Autumn is caught between tow guys and a future of endless possibilities.

During the cruise Autumn lives through different realities, changing each time she falls asleep. At first she thinks they're just dreams, or maybe she's going crazy, but she soon realises it's real and if she isn't careful she may get stuck in one of the other realities.

At first I disliked Autumn, I thought she was childish, selfish and mean, especially towards Joey who'd done nothing to deserve it. I loved watching her grow and change into a person I came to really like. The other characters were also really well written and I was team Joey all the way! When we first met him, Autumn called him a creep and a weirdo and I just wanted to hold him and protect him from her nasty words! He was an absolute sweetheart!

This book was a really nice, light read and even though it wasn't all fun and games and there were some darker parts,  I still found it to be quick and fun but with a nice message of self-development and love.

3.5/5 Whales

  1. It's nice when a character has a good development :) I don't think I've ever read a book with the Bermuda triangle in it. Sounds interesting!
