The End of InnocencePirates! follows the exciting adventures of Nancy Kington, a wealthy merchant's daughter. Her regular life as a 16 year-old girl comes to an end when her father passes away and leaves his estate to his only daughter. As she sails from her old home in England to her new residence in Jamaica, she meets Adam Broom, the ship's first mate who later becomes a pirate captain.

In a desperate attempt to escape, Nancy runs away with her slave-turned-best friend, Minerva Sharpe, to join Adam's pirate ship. However, living life as a pirate is harder than either of the girls expected. They encounter all sorts of exciting yet dangerous escapades as they rob merchant ships, fight off enemies, and battle the stormy waves of the ocean. However, these experiences prove invaluable as both Nancy and Minerva learn the true tests of friendship, trust, and loyalty.
