How do you ruin a perfectly good summer vacation? Clio is about to find out. The plan was to work at her favorite art store and flirt with her favorite employee, tall and handsome Ollie. Then Clio’s mom lands a fellowship to work in Kansas, and her impulsive dad comes up with a brilliant idea. Clio should spend the summer with him. On a boat. In Italy. Just like that, she finds herself on a mysteriously purchased yacht with the crew her dad has assembled for an equally mysterious mission. What are they doing out there on the Mediterranean? Will Ollie think about Clio while she’s gone? And most importantly, how can she get to her e-mail?
