Source: I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

April Mae Manning from Unaccompanied Minor is back, and back in trouble, but this time, she's run out of chances...
April Mae was raised on airplanes by her flight-attendant parents. But since her dad's death and her mom's remarriage to the nefarious pilot Ash Manning, April's been in nothing but danger: two airplane crashes; two car crashes; and now, as a student pilot, in an old plane crippled over the Caribbean. Can she survive, and save her friends, or is this the watery end to "Crash" Manning's story?
Praise for Unaccompanied Minor: "A laugh-out-loud thriller about family court, money laundering and skyjacking" ~Kirkus Reviews

April Manning is back in this sequel to Unaccompanied Minor and her life is just as crazy as ever! There something fishy going on with the wealthy Colgate family, which also happens to include April's best friend Malcolm. That dirtbag/stepfather Ash is back, but April is ready to face him with help from her friends Flo, Ned and LaVonda.

Realism is definitely not the goal of this series. So much crazy stuff happens that I highly double would ever happen in real life. But if you go in not expecting a realistic story, you will have a ton of fun!

My favourite character is still Flo. She's so feisty and funny and I hope I am like her when I get old! Officer Ned is another favourite and I loved the crazy, over-the-top things that LaVonda would say. And don't forget the oh-so-lovable Captain Beefheart!

This series hasn't wowed me so far, but it's just so much fun in the moment that it doesn't really matter and I hope that there are more crazy stories for April "Crash" Manning. Could you imagine if she became an actual pilot!?!?!
