Review of Semester Aboard (More than Magic)

Semester Aboard
(More than Magic series)
Elizabeth Kirke

Semester Aboard was great. From the very first page, I was hooked. Jen is just an ordinary 20 something year old  spending a semester of college aboard a ship traveling around South America. Little does she know that the walk she takes around the ship one late night would chance her life forever. During her late night walk, Jen witnesses something she knows is impossible. Enter Dani, Charlie, Mariana, TS, and Thomas, five people who all hold very unique secrets. Since Jen has seen something that she shouldn't, the five strangers take turns following Jen around to make sure she doesn't tell anyone what she has seen, until they get word from Jon on what to do. Jen is taken to meet Jon and during the meeting, a surprising discovery is made, and the group, instead of following her around, take Jen under their wings. Each of the characters in this book are so likable and unique. Their characteristics are unbelievably detailed. You won't be able to help yourself from falling in love with these characters. Semester Aboard is clearly well-thought out and a great beginning of an awesome series.
