Clio Ford is seventeen and has just gotten the best news of her summer so far--she's going to be working at Galaxy Art Supply where her crush, Ollie, works!! As soon as she gets back to her home where she and her mother live, Clio is bursting to tell her mother the great news. However, Clio's mother is about to drop the biggest bomb of her life on Clio since the divorce of her parents. Apparently, Clio's mother has been granted some funding for school, but there's a catch--she has to go Kansas to work on a restoration project. For ten weeks. Which means Clio has to go somewhere. (un)Fortunately for Clio, her father has called and offered to take her on a cruise around the Mediterranean. Which means she has to give up her wonderful new position in the Galaxy Art Supply and go globe trotting with her father, again.

Things seem appear pretty dismal as Clio gets off her plane and meets her father in the airport. Once there, she meets the crew- Martin, her father's long time friend and a great ally to her; a beautiful girl named Ella who looks like a dairy goddess; Ella's mother who looks nothing like Ella and also happens to be in a relationship with Clio's father; and the mysterious and handsome Aidan.

Everything about the cruise is kept under wraps and Clio knows next to nothing about why they're on this spur-of-the-moment trip to the Mediterranean. That is, until Clio finds something that leads her to believe that they are on this cruise to possibly unlock the secrets of civilization through a bit of treasure. Of course, a treasure hunt is nothing without a bit of romance-Ella is crushing on Aidan, but Aidan really likes Clio. Clio wants to stay out of this because she still really likes Ollie. Like her previous book, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Maureen Johnson creates a wonderful story with the romance mixed in with a bit of confused teenage female lead character and a wonderful treasure hunt.
