A High Wind In Jamaica, by Richard Hughes

Children, accidentally kidnapped by pirates, take to piracy rather well. 4 stars. A High Wind in Jamaica. Richard Hughes. Best Thing: Swashbuckling! Good historical fiction with plenty of pirates and colonialism. Worst Thing: Children as conscienceless monsters. I mean, toddlers? Sure. But ten-year-olds? That's a little unbelievable.
