The Loose Ends List by Carrie Firestone
The idea behind the book is intriguing. Maddie's grandmother takes the family on what is essentially a death cruise - they call it "death with dignity". It is a cruise ship for terminally ill patients and their families to have their last hurrah and last time together. The cruise ship is called the Wishwell and several of the characters get to know one another and deal with illness and death. There is a lot of interesting travel. Maddie and her family all seem rather superficial and spoiled and rich, but there are funny parts of the book along with sad parts, and an insta-love romance for Maddie. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
