A work of historical fiction told in verse from multiple points of view. Detailing the first Caribbean pirate shipwreck Engle mixes history and real people with her own imagination. Intensely emotional, this is a story about the battle for power and the search for identity. The author includes her own note as well as a historical note providing background on the people and events of the story. She also includes a list of references. This would be an excellent companion to any study of The Tempest either at the high school or college level. In terms of appeal this one might be a hard sell, but older teens may be able to appreciate its beauty.
