Review

Hilary Westfield has wanted to be a pirate all her life. When she is rejected from joining The Very Nearly Honourable League of Pirates for being a girl, she is outraged. To make matters worse, her parents send her to Miss Pimm's Finishing School for Delicate Ladies instead. Not easily deterred, she escapes school to join a freelance pirate called The Terror of the Southlands. Soon Hilary finds life gets much more exciting as she finally takes to the high seas in a dangerous quest for treasure!

The first of an exciting new trilogy, this is an action packed and fast paced story appealing to girls and boys. With witty dialogue, a likeable and feisty heroine and lots of humour and excitement, this has all the makings of a good old fashioned adventure.
