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.

This novel makes for a good, quick read on the beach or somewhere just as pleasant. Miya is a very likable and fun character to read about, constantly active and always inquisitive and caring.

This is a charming example of children's fiction. The main character, Miya Black, is a fantastic female character - gritty, determined and loyal. Her supporting characters also have surprising depth and the action scenes pull no punches! 8-year-old me would have loved this book about a princess who is really a pirate and gets to sail her own ship around delivering beat-downs to everyone who gets in her way.
