The End of Innocence

Pirates! 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. Nancy hates her new life under the guardianship of her nasty brother, who has plans to marry her off to a rich, but evil man.

Swashbuckling Adventures

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.


Love on the High Seas

Nancy enjoys her new pirate way of life, but feels desperately lonely and longs to be reunited with her childhood friend and first love, William. However, he has joined the navy and is hunting down criminals, specifically pirates, which is why Nancy and her pirate crew must escape William's sights! Although difficult circumstances keep them apart, Nancy's love for William keeps her strong throughout her struggles as a pirate.


The Bottom Line

Pirates! is a thick book, but it's entertaining. Once you pick up a copy, your eyes will stay glued to the adventurous tales and it'll be hard to put down - all 379 pages!

    Send Letters to President Obama and Congress : 27,226  Letters Sent So Far   It’s an unprecedented move by an American president, and you should be outraged. President Obama has sided with the terrorists — and against our friend and ally, Israel. In an effort to jump-start peace talks in the Middle East, President Obama has made the choice to side with the Palestinian Authority (PA). In a stinging rebuke of the Israeli people, he called Israel a force of ############ and demanded that the nation revert to the 1967 borders — a move that would divide Jerusalem. By turning against Israel ... and backing the PA ... President Obama is throwing his support to Hamas, a terrorist organization that vows to eliminate Israel. This all-out assault on Israel is not a pathway to peace — it's an unacceptable political play against our most important and trusted Middle East ally. The ACLJ is mobilizing its resources, both in America and in Jerusalem, mounting a legal and legislative effort to protect Israel. Stand with us now in support of the nation of Israel and in opposition to President Obama's troubling new pro-terrorist policy against them by simply googling aclj petition for lsrael and signing the petition, its the first result snd in case you get  onfused, shares the same title as this thread. Thank you.
