it was amazing

Fantastic old-fashioned adventure! Emilie, unloved and maligned by her aunt and uncle, resolves to run away and seek employment at her cousin's school for girls. When she runs short of funds for the journey, she tries to stow away on a ship. Instead, she finds herself on a ship with a destination outside the realm of the everyday.

Reminiscent of Verne, this adventure has danger, excitement, explorers, scientists, pirates, saboteurs, monsters, magic, airships, submersibles, and a plucky young girl as the heroine who doesn't shy away from any of it.

A great YA book, certainly, but just as much fun for grown-ups who miss old-fashioned tales of adventure, bravery, and derring-do.
