Reader reviewed by The Bookish Snob

There were so many interesting characters in this book that really contributed to the feel of the story but to me three really STOOD out. First there was Liz, this sassy and opinionated girl who when faced with the disappearance of her mother jumps feet first into trouble and THRIVES. When she finds herself in the past with really no idea where to start, she takes charge of the situation and I LOVED watching her take on the mannerisms of the pirates she found herself surrounded by. She goes from a relatively normal modern day girl to one who without pausing (or batting an eye) threatens "Come any closer and I will slice you in half and show you the color of your insides" She fit right in and was ALOT of fun to read. Of course, every story there has to be a guy and although there were two in this story (a quick shout out to Wang) my attention was forever on Daniel, "the man-boy wannabe pirate" as Liz affectionately called him. He is EVERYTHING mysterious and he doesn't give very much information about himself away. Whether I was sighing over his pirate appearance and cocky two finger salute or laughing at his sarcastic conversations with Liz, I was going from moment to moment wondering "Who is this Daniel Corker guy?" Just when you think you know and think Liz will get him to answer her questions, he'd be wearing that grin of his and evade. IT DROVE ME NUTS but had me on the edge of my seat because honestly, who deoesn't find a mysterious bad boy HOT!! But, the third character who I felt STOLE the show and had me laughing the hardest was none other than Liz's parrot CJ !! My gosh it was the most sarcastic, quick witted, wise cracking bird I've ever seen. Whether he was squawking out loud or sharing a telepathic path with Liz, CJ was always there in every situation adding his two cents worth and as the story went on began speaking more like a pirate than the pirates were. HILARIOUS !! 

I found myself not wanting to put the book down. This was an extremely entertaining book and without spoiling anything, you really don't want to miss the ending because if you're anything like me, you'll be left sitting straight as a board where you're sitting, gripping the book tightly, screaming "Whaaaatttt there has to be more" It was a great first book and I can't wait to see what happens next.
