REVIEW

'Lackbeard' is a shipshape story written by Cody B. Stewart and Adam Rocke. It's about a pirate-loving orphan named Carter and his scallywaggish crew of orphans. Together, they steal an ancient pirate map and set sail on a treasure-hunting adventure. Of course, they only do that after they steal a boat. Unfortunately for them, Brad, Carter's big brother, was to be sent off to Valley Forge Military Academy. That means that the lead general of this academy, Major North, is going to be hot on their trail. When you pick up this book, prepare for an adventure that will make you want to sing a sea chantey with all your hearties.

Overall, I thought this was a very good story. The characters were extremely diverse from a tough Cuban lass who won’t let anyone give him a hard time, to a relentless retired military general who will stop at nothing to catch the orphaned buccaneers. There is an old fisherman who is determined to save his favorite orphan. One of my favorite things about this book is that there was a lot of character progression. I can't begin to tell you about how many books I've read that would have been much better if the characters had changed from the lesson’s they learned in the story. There was a small amount of swearing, although I personally didn't mind. Overall, I think this is a well-written book that I wouldn't mind reading a sequel to.
