4.5 Wow, this book ends up being a fairly intense pirate story. The main character, Phinea Button, is terrific. Growing up in an orphanage and becoming a serious tomboy, she has a series of events that send her out on the high seas during the American war for independence.

Probably for ages 13 and up--Some violence and gore.

Really like the tension life and death situations that are set up. I thought the author was very perceptive about the eastern seaboard during this time of the colonies.

Really enjoyed the references to Whitfield and Wesley and the Christian references. Graphically portrayed is the horrible situation the redcoats set up for the colonies. Phinea has to shoot some of them!

Loved the fiddle playing as a release for the pain of the soul idea. Just wanted to see Fin play the darn thing a little more!
