One of my absolute favorite books. It manages to deal with several serious subjects in an irreverant, nonscary, and teen friendly way- quite an accomplishment!Almost sixteen year old Drew and his younger sister Steph are disappointed to be sent on a Scandinavian senior citizens' cruise with the star of the program- the grandmother they have never met. After meeting the dance instructor- the gorgeous Holly, Drew decides the summer may not be as hopeless as he first thought.

I loved how it expressed the feelings of the charecters. it tugged on my heart strings. i was crying when i found out the grandma had cancer, and the drunk was their grandfather. it was funny when he went skinny-dipping in the hot tub.
