An unknown group has overtaken the ship. After a few days, they collect thousands of new passengers from a distant archipelago, making conditions onboard overcrowded and uncomfortable.

Jilda didn't know just how much her Sweet 16th birthday would surprise her. In Verity Croker's book "Jilda's Ark", her story takes us through a journey of more than just a girl's realization that being taking away mistakenly isn't as bad as what she learns as to the reasons why and also she learns a little more about her own sexuality. 

The story begins with a typical teenager's desire to spend their Sweet 16th on a cruise. Jilda and her twin sister Rosa had taking this journey with their mother. However, Jilda falls ill one day and stays behind to rest. To the horror of any alone teenager she wakes to discover the ship has set off leaving her mother and sister behind. Only a few remain and are now under orders from people that have now taken over the ship. 

Scared and unsure of their destination and their future upon this ship, Jilda makes friends with others. She learns as well as shares  with others about herself and her family. During the first few days, a girl about her age catches her attention, confused as to why she suddenly feels the need to dress, maintain eye contact or look for her at any given opportunity confusions Jilda. Finally, she meets her mystery girl, Jada, and what forms between them sets off more than just underlying emotions. 

It's hard to say without going into too much detail what a profound impression that this books can leave on a reader. Although, the places and people are fiction just knowing that real life events such as these happen will leave an everlasting impression.
