There is nothing better than a good pirate book and that is what The Chronicles of Egg series promises to be- pirates, villains and a beautiful damsel not in distress. Egg lives on the awful island of Deadweather next to a tropical paradise where his family owns an ugly fruit plantation managed by disabled ex-pirates. Egg is the youngest of three and does his best to keep out of the way of his older brother's fists, sister's whining and dad's anger. The family goes on a trip to the neighboring island of Sunrise when disaster strikes putting Egg in the care of a wealthy landowner and his family. Bad things keep happening and Egg must run away until he can find a way to vindicate his family's death and find a missing treasure all while hiding from pirates, the army and the villain in addition to winning the heart of the beautiful Millicent. It is a sad tale and there is some violence but you can't really have a pirate adventure without it. This is Geoff Rodkey's first novel and I am expecting big things in store from the next in this series. Great summer read for both boys and girls!
