The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, By Avi
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the only passenger
on a ship? You'll find that out and more including how precarious life
was at sea during the 1830s. Especially with mutiny, hurricanes and a
mean captain who beats the crew to death and jumps to false
conclusions. Charlotte Doyle is in this position as she is sailing to
America to meet her father and with the help of one of the crew she
survives the voyage.
I felt transported by this adventure it was hard to put down as are all books by Avi.
