There's no place like home.

For Princess Miya Black, 'home' is Clover Island, a tiny dot of a place not even named on most maps. Founded fifteen years ago by her parents, ex-pirate Tomas "Boots" Black and ex-princess Lilith "Lily" Brightburn, it's a place for second chances and new beginnings. It's there that Miya was born, there she grew up, and there she now lives, spendi

Miya Black, Pirate Princess: Adventure Dawns is a fun little book by Ben White. Miya is the daughter of Queen Lilith and King Tomas Black, ex-pirate of Clover Island. Miya is just turning fourteen and, much to her chagrin, a ball is being held in her honour. Miya hates balls, she hates dresses, she hates the responsibilities of being a princess.
