A fast-paced, swashbuckling, pirate adventure story from the author of Hour of the Bees.
An emotionally nuanced tale that revisits some of the same themes as Hour of the Bees – including death and mourning, a love story tinged with tragedy, and a main character who must rely on her wits to save the day – but might have broader appeal, given the adventure aspect.
Pirates! Kidnapping! Treasure! Inventions! Sharks! Candy! Doomed lovers! Tragic deaths! Library books! There’s something for almost everyone in this astonishingly unique and brilliant novel by Candlewick treasure Lindsay Eagar.
