I vividly remember reading this together with my mom before the movie was released and then both of us going to see the movie once it was in theatres. A good trip down memory lane but the novelization itself is merely that and not much more. Serviceable but slight.

This is a sweet coming-of-age story, in which Haakon Haakonsen takes on the responsibility of paying to redeem his family farm by becoming a ship's boy on the Flora, a trading ship. He overcomes personal fears, pirates, and sharks on his voyage.

A quick read, the language is good, but simple. My 9-year-old daughter loved the story.

“Sydney's the kind of port that leaves a mark on a sailor," the old man mused.
"Really?" Haakon said, wondering what the man meant.
"It did on me," he said, opening up his shirt to display his chest. It was covered with tattoos! At the top, SYDNEY was printed in elaborate red and blue letters. Beneath that was an enticing selection of names and dates.
"Mary, 1838...Adella, 1840..." The old sailor began laughing. "Beatrice, 1843...Helen, 1846." And then finally, "Mother." There was no date after "Mother."
"Mothers you love forever," he said. Everybody laughed then, including Haakon, though the thought brought some sadness to his heart. He did love his mother forever, and he missed her as well.”
