Very good book. We listened to it in the car on vacation. My 10 year old didn't want to stop listening to it.

It is the story of two teenage female pirates in the early 1720s.This audiobook provided entertainment for both adults and children. The reader was easy to listen to, with a good facility for accents, without taking away from the story. The story was involving, with action and intrigue as well as providing a historical frame - we learned and were entertained at the same time. Highly recommended for long family car trips.
