Tour Schedule:




Seasick was an interesting title for a very fast paced YA Novel. Kristin and Pintip did an amazing job setting the scene and having many characters who were either reliable or unreliable characters. Naya and Yana were brilliant as the main characters who could see past everything that had happened in the past and worked together to try and catch a killer


I loved how each chapter had a time stamp and oh boy did a lot happen and the murders Agatha Christie would be proud of. I could not work out who the killer was so I gave up guessing and enjoyed the ride and when the killer was unmasked I was surprised.


For all the above reasons Seasick receives 4 stars
