Historical (fiction), Trade Book, Lexile 740
It is 1832 and prim, proper thirteen-year-old Charlotte Doyle is traveling alone from Liverpool, England, to Rhode Island, the only female onboard the Seahawk. Charlotte quickly learns that the ship is full of secrets and treachery, especially in the seemingly elegant Captain Jaggery, whose good manners and charm turn to violence and murder once a plot to mutiny is discovered. To survive, Charlotte must cast off her preconceived notions about gender and class, and become a member of the crew.
