Summary

Rock the Boat is a modern interpretation of the best selling Victorian classic 'Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome.

We follow a fame hungry teenage rock band along The River Thames on route to play at the famous music event 'Reading Festival'. The problem is, they're not booked to perform and no one knows who they are! They consider this a minor detail and put their plans into action to go viral and become the new international rock sensation!

Access into the festival lies with the a band's front man Jerome, who is expecting festival tickets for his birthday. But excitement turns to despair when a misunderstanding delivers wrong tickets and a boat trip!  The old boat has seen better days but determined not to let this ruin their big break, Jerome is forced to improvise to sail the band to stardom.

He convinces his band mates to take to the water in the dilapidated boat, but a catalogue of errors and encounters with unwelcome guests cause plenty of waves along the way. This cruise is far from plain sailing - will they make it to the festival on time, and will they go viral for all the wrong reasons? 

Trashed Classics puts a new spin on literary fiction to make it accessible and relevant for a new generation. With modern interpretations, diverse engaging characters, and references to popular culture, readers are encouraged to identify with a traditional genre that might otherwise be dismissed as dated, uninspiring and irrelevant.

    Three contemporary novels of recovery, romance, and finding who you really are come together for the first time in this ebook-only bind-up of bestselling author Amy Clipston’s Roadside Assistance Series. Contains: 
    Roadside Assistance: Emily Curtis is used to dealing with her problems while under the hood of an old Chevy, but when her mom dies, Emily’s world seems shaken beyond repair. Driven from home by hospital bills they can’t pay, Emily and her dad move in with his wealthy sister, who intends to make her niece more feminine—in other words, just like Whitney, Emily’s perfect cousin. Then Emily hears the engine of a 1970 Dodge Challenger, and sees the cute gearhead, Zander, next door. But even working alongside Zander may not completely fix the hole in Emily’s life. 
    Destination Unknown: It’s senior year, and Whitney Richards is tired of the constant pressures to be perfect. When she gets a D in Calculus, her mother immediately hires Taylor, a tutor who happens to be a quiet, mysterious boy who is unlike anyone Whitney has met before. But Taylor’s rougher upbringing has her mother and friends discouraging any type of relationship. Tired of having to play a part for everyone else, Whitney quits the cheerleading squad that once defined her social identity and begins spending more time with Taylor. Her mom and friends worry Whitney is making a huge mistake, and even Taylor begins to show concern for some of her choices. But for the first time, Whitney is in the driver’s seat of her life. Will she be able to find her identity before she throws everything away?

And she intends to make the most of her last summer in North Carolina. But with her best friend Emily busy working late and spending time with Zander, and tensions with Chelsea’s boyfriend, Todd, running high, the summer she envisioned seems to be falling flat. Then Dylan joins the latest summer production. There’s something about the college boy that makes her feel free and alive, and soon she’s sneaking out late to meet Dylan at parties and breaking rules at the playhouse. As the summer becomes wilder than she ever dreamed, Chelsea must decide if her heart is leading her in the right direction after all.

And why, oh why is one of his classmates (hint:  she’s Nate’s dream girl) suddenly moving 3,000 miles away?  It’s all enough to make a sixth-grade superstar feel . . . well, not so super. But you can’t keep a good man down, and Nate’s still got pals like Teddy, Francis, and Chad to cheer him up. Sure, their methods aren’t always warm and fuzzy, but Nate doesn’t mind. After all, what’s a little noogie between friends?
