The basic idea of this story is awesome. 1939, small English island near France, family on the look out for Nazis. This quest leads to Nick going back in time to 1805 to help Admiral Nelson, his hero, fight pirates, while his little sister Kate battles Nazis in their present.

It's very much written in the style of old fashioned boy adventure books - tons of action, lots of tension, overly dramatic. Even the illustrations fit that perfectly. I thought it was too overwrought most of the time, but it is a grand adventure.

Michelle Wow, that was quick! LOL... It will have to wait till next month for me to even consider it!!! I sure am glad that GoodReads has a way of printing off a list of your "to reads"!

Okay, keep the recommendations coming, kill me with books, there is no better way to go!
