Moby Clique hits stores March 4, 2008
Some literary classics have been around for
Miranda Tate's just hoping to survive junior year. . .
Her summer reading assignment is Moby-Dick, but
Miranda's vacation hasn't exactly been smooth sailing.
Between working at her stepmother's hideous all-pink
boutique, and having broken up with her basketball
champ boyfriend Ryan, not to mention snoozing her way
through one of literature's heaviest tomes, she's
almost looking forward to returning to Bard Academy.
That was before her kid sister Lindsay smashed up
their dad's Land Rover and got shipped off to Bard
herself. Is the punishment Lindsay's-or Miranda's?
A private school staffed by the ghosts of famous dead
writers is hard enough to navigate without a freshman
kid sister in tow, but now Miranda's trying to sort
out her feelings for her brooding friend Heathcliff,
who happens to be a fictional character, while keeping
Bard's secrets from her nosey sister. And when her
nemesis Parker handpicks gullible Lindsay to be a
Parker clone, Miranda knows a storm is brewing. Then,
Lindsay disappears in the woods . . . and a frantic
search sends Ryan, Miranda, and Heathcliff to Whale
Cove, a spot rumored to hide a sunken pirate's ship.
But something-or someone-even more ominous and
terrifying lurks there. Can Miranda stay the course
and save her sister?
