Thank you TBR and Beyond Tours for providing me with an e-copy of this book.
This fast-paced thriller about a girl who investigates her friend’s disappearance during their cruise ship vacation is Ruth Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10 for teens—and it’s a paperback original!
When Izzy meets Jade on a cruise to Bermuda, her new daredevil friend turns Izzy’s boring family vacation into the trip of a lifetime. Until Jade goes missing.
The investigators claim Jade fell overboard, but Izzy knows better. Her friend had secrets—secrets that might have gotten her killed. As Izzy digs deeper into Jade’s disappearance, she realizes that someone doesn’t want her to find the truth. And if she’s not careful, Izzy might not get off this ship alive.
Underlined is a line of totally addictive romance, thriller, and horror paperback original titles coming to you fast and furious each month. Enjoy everything you want to read the way you want to read it.
If you’re looking for a quick mystery read for the holidays this one for you. It takes place on a cruise so definitely perfect for the summer holiday it will be like going abroad with the characters (or not).
Because you don’t want to be Izzy or Jade.. Izzy did not want to be there. When she meets Jade she’s happy she made a friends who’s quite popular until the day she disappears… The cruise has this curse: someone always jump off the boat and dies. What if it’s what happened to Jade? Izzy doesn’t believe this, she knows Jade wouldn’t have jumped…
To me it was more of a mystery than a thriller, or maybe it can be the perfect thriller for someone who starts reading young adult thriller. It’s full of twits and revelations.
I enjoyed the fast paced but o guess it was too easy for me, and I felt like there was a lot missing in the story. I was really happy with the twists and the ending.

I love a good mystery, and this book sounds intriguing. I wonder what happened to Jade and if Izzy safely made it off the boat.
Thank you for sharing your honest review! 😊
I was about to say how I’m not really one for thrillers, but then I read how you felt like it was more of a mystery than anything else. That makes me way more interested in it. I do enjoy a good “murder mystery” when they’re done well. I’ll have to check it out!
