9780142426241: Ship Out of Luck

Companion to The Schwa Was Here!

In honor of Old Man Crawley’s eightieth birthday, the Bonano family has been invited to celebrate with a weeklong cruise to the Caribbean aboard the world’s largest, grandest ship. But whether on land or at sea, Antsy can’t manage to stay out of trouble: He quickly finds himself the accomplice of stowaway and thief Tilde, whose self-made mission it is to smuggle onto the ship and across the U.S. border illegal immigrants from her native Mexico. When Antsy steps in to take the fall for Tilde, he becomes the focus of a major international incident and the poster child for questionable decisions.

Equal parts clever and riotous, Ship Out of Luck brings back the beloved cast of characters from Neal Shusterman’s acclaimed The Schwa Was Here and Antsy Does Time.

About the Author:

Neal Shusterman's novels have been honored with awards from the International Reading Association and readers in many states. His novels span many genres, from humor to suspense thrillers to science fiction. Neal lives in Southern California with his four children.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7-10-Wisecracking Anthony Bonano is back in this lively companion to The Schwa Was Here (2004) and Antsy Does Time (2008, both Dutton). The Bonanos have been invited to join curmudgeonly Old Man Crawley and his granddaughter, Lexie, for an all-expenses-paid, weeklong Caribbean Cruise aboard the Plethora of the Deep, the most luxurious cruise ship in the world. Antsy soon finds that his vacation is destined to be anything but relaxing, however, as he befriends a stowaway and thief, Tilde, who has been breaking into guests' cabins and stealing five dollars from each passenger's wallet. In typical fashion, Antsy follows his big heart (not to mention his big mouth) straight into an ocean of trouble. Before he knows it, he becomes involved in Tilde's scheme to smuggle illegal Mexican immigrants into the U.S. and winds up at the center of an international incident. Antsy's family and friends are all suffering their own personal crises. Once again, the teen must rely on his quick wit-and his Brooklyn attitude-to save the day. While not quite as humorous or heartfelt as its predecessors, this novel does contain a certain amount of charm, including a winning cast of secondary characters. Anthony's strong voice and perplexing moral dilemmas are compelling, but the sometimes slow-moving plot and unrealistic ending may cause some teens to lose interest.
