I liked the last book in the"Final Friends" series. This book was a continuation of the prior two "Final Friends". The same characters (Michael, Bubba, Bill, The Rock, Nick, Russ, Kats, Polly, Jessie, Sara, Claire, and Marie) are now at the end of their senior year and are getting ready for graduation. The book picks up a day or so before the graduation and the graduation party, which is an overnight on a boat. The end of the book has a lot of action as the killer is identified and the boat has a hole blown in it. The last portion of the book really gets engaging and I could not put the book down. The conclusion was complicated. I was close to figuring the killer, but a twist at the end landed me close but not complete. The writing is good but it is geared for young adult/juvenile literature.

Book description
The last day of school had finally arrived, six months after the homecoming dance and the ruin of a princess, and nine months after the big party and the death of an angel. It is to be a busy day; there is the graduation ceremony in the afternoon in the football stadium, and then the senior all-night party aboard a cruise ship heading to Catalina.
But for Michael Olson, it is not a time to celebrate. It is a day to finish an investigation that may cost him his life. It is also a final chance to let the girl of his dreams, Jessica Hart, know his feelings for her.

But the last day will not last long enough.

For Michael or Jessica.

The cruise ship will never reach its destination.

The truth will turn out to be a lie.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

It's the last day of high school and Michael still thinks that Alice's death wasn't suicide but that the murderer is waiting to strike again.
