Pirates! – Celia Rees

Posted by Laura on June 13, 2008

Nancy’s father owns a fleet of cargo ships and is a wealthy merchant. When a storm destroys much of his fleet he makes a deal that will save his fortune. Nancy is part of this deal, and shortly she is on a ship that has set sail for Jamaica where she learns what fate her father has set up for her.

I bet you can guess part of what happens next from the title. Pirates!: the true and remarkable adventures of Minerva Sharpe and Nancy Kington, female pirates is an adventurous read. Nancy gets separated from everyone she loves and makes a new friend, who turns out to be much more than a friend. Sometimes you don’t just let things happen to you. You stand up and do for yourself.
