Today we have a special edition of The ABCs brought to you by Kathy Parks for her character Denver in her new book The Lifeboat Clique. Make sure you read all the way to the end to enter the giveaway.

Hi, it’s Denver Reynolds from The Lifeboat Clique. You know my shopping needs changed drastically once a tsunami washed me out to sea.


For example, accessories.

When attempting to avoid the glare of both the sun and your ex-best friend, try these polarized Fisherman sunglasses:

I know they’re super expensive but a water-deprived, hallucinating girl at sea can dream, can’t she?

As for books, this book on survival comes in very handy during times like these, and it’s very entertaining and fascinating to read:

But no enforced sea vacation after an act of God would be complete without this valuable piece of clothing with an SPF of 50 to keep your skin from burning. Yes, it’s a little loud but it helps when you’re trying to attract passing ships:

Thanks so much, and tell the Coast Guard I said hello!

Some people might say that Denver had a death wish. Why else would she have dared to sneak into a Malibu beach party where she’d be surrounded by enemies, namely including her ex-BFF Abigail?

Oh yeah. Croix. Denver never thought in a million years he’d ask her out, but who was she to question this miracle of fate? Well, that wasn’t the only surprise fate had in store.

During the party a tsunami hit the coast of California, wiping out everything in its path. Denver and a handful of others escaped death by holding onto the roof of the house and were swept out to sea. Of course, one of her fellow castaways was none other than Abigail, who could barely stand the sight of her.

Now that she’s floating in 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?

A hilariously dark and twisted story that sparkles with a remarkably fresh voice, The Lifeboat Clique is Kathy Park’s irreverent yet insightful novel about how to survive in the most unthinkable circumstances.
