Ship Out of Luck
In Shusterman's whimsical companion to The Schwa was Here and Antsy Does Time, Old Man Crawley is about to turn 80. To celebrate, he commands Antsy and his family to join him for a week aboard the incredibly fabulous cruise ship Plethora of the Deep. But whether on land or at sea, Antsy can’t manage to stay out of trouble. He quickly finds himself the accomplice of Tilde, a stowaway and smuggler of illegal immigrants from her native Mexico. When Antsy steps in to take the fall for Tilde, he becomes the focus of a major international incident and the poster child for questionable decisions.
